Do I need thyroid surgery again?

I had a complete thyroidectomy in 2009 after I was diagnosed with hashimoto's and had a goiter 4 times larger than the normal thyroid size. I had several nodules all benign. I was only 24 years old at the time. Now while being checked over for a regular cold, I find out my thyroid has grown back to normal size and has a nodule on my left size. I had a fine needle biopsy to determine that my 0.08cm nodule is benign. I'm very concerned at the rate it grew back. I've never missed my levothyroxine and I'm already on 200mcg a day. I'm worried it's going to continue to grow again. Do I need to have it removed again?
