Not enough info: Without knowing your detaisl like age duration etc it hard to say but thyroid nodule is felt in the neck above your breast bone and majority of times the thyroid nodule is not painful with few exceptions.If you are concerned please check with your family doctor.

Doubtful: Tenderness of the breastbone and thyroid nodules usually have nothing to do with each other. If you have tenderness to the breastbone, please see your doctor you may need an x-ray and definitely you need a physical exam to evaluate the problem. If you have thyroid nodules, you also need to see your doctor for the proper evaluation and treatment.
