Thyroid Cyst - Surgery booked ??

I have been diagnosed by a surgeon with a thyroid cust. It was drained in Oct ' 08, non-malignent, then drained again in December ' 08, not tested, and now in Jan ' 09 the cust measuring about 15mm by 11mm in inside my right lobe of my thyroid. The doctor recommends complete removal of the thyroid. Should he do this or should I request a second opinion from an Endocrinologist? Who would have the better knowledge in your opionin. Please not I have discomfort (tight feeling of the throat), difficulty swallowing and some pain.
Thanks Sonja
