Thyroid Management of thyroid nodules

Hi all:

If today my FNA of the thyroid nodule comes back with malignant result, i can only do lobectomy but not total thyroidectomy? If I want to do total thyroidectomy do i need to have frozen section first or not? Can I do total thyroidectomy right after my FNA showing this is follicular neoplasm without doing frozen section?

Thank you!
