Abnormal Pathology on Thyroid Nodule

I just received my pathology results today from a needle biopsy that was done Monday. My primary care felt a goiter on my neck last month and ordered an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed that I had a multi nodular goiter. There was one partially solid nodule on my left side. That partially solid nodule was biopsied. 5 different aspirations were taken of that nodule. My doctor said that the path did not show cancer but it was abnormal. Therefore the concern becomes "Is there something hidden." I am trying to remain positive that my pathology came back negative for cancer but I can't be completely calm since there is a Question of whether "something is hidden." He said he was trying to decide whether to send me to an oncologist or endocrinologist and decided on an endocrinologist. So now I am going there. Why even consider sending me to an oncologist if there is no evidence of cancer in my pathology?? I should mention that I had Hodgkins Disease 17 years ago with chemo and radiation treatment... Anyone else have an abnormal pathology that was not showing cancer? What was it? Looking for a calming voice.
