Thyroid nodule

Hi, I have a thyroid nodule that is 3cm I had it biopsied and it came back follicular benign. My endocrinologist is telling me that when it is follicular it is impossible to know for sure it’s benign and he recommends removal. However, the ENT is telling me not to worry it’s benign. I trust my endocrinologist but it is surgery so I would like another opinion. Thyroid cancer runs in my family. Thank you.

Safrole exposure

This is a weird question. A little over 6 months ago, my friends and I were having a fire. We used a lot of sassafras root bark as fire wood and inhaled a lot of hot smoke. Later, I learned that safrole and other chemicals contained in the bark are suspected carcinogens. I have been very anxious about the potential health effects (lung or other cancer). We experienced no side effects and have had no symptoms whatsoever since that night. I do have GAD, so I wonder if my worry is illogical.
