Thyroid Thyriod Nodule Workup

Just confusion on my part but was wondering what is the best thing to do in a pt who has a nodule? USMLEWorld states to do initial Serum TSH study, but in Step up to Medicine it states to do FNA 1st (pg 172).

I believe in MTB it's also TSH first. Because if it's a cold nodule we should have a higher suspicion index for malignancy and then perform FNA.
