Had FNA biopsy of the 3cm nodule today. When he drained off the fluid there was calcification under the fluid. He took a biopsy of those also. Now waiting just waiting for the results.Thanks for your response. This web site has been very helpful.

The 3cm cystic nodule should undergo FNA biopsy but this is likely (95%) benign.  The other nodules are small (<10mm) and unless there is history of radiation exposure (treatment) to neck or family history of thyroid cancer,would watch those.
