Stop ramipiril: No, most likely the cough will continue and the throat swelling is definitely a reason NOT to continue to take Ramipiril. This is what we call an ACE inhibitor which has the side effects you mention and should be stopped and you need to consult with your MD for further recs.

Can thyroid cancer increase breast cancer risk?

Not usually: There are some families who have increased rates of a variety of cancers, including papillary thyroid cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer. But having one does not cause an risk for another; instead inherited genes put a person at increased risk for both. A person with a history of thyroid cancer should be sure to get recommended mammograms and colon tests.

Yes if not improved: If you are still hurting without any real improvement or if it is feeling worse, then a MRI would be indicated unless the pain is mild and not affecting your life.

Situational symptoms: When your symptoms are so situational (distress occurs when you are in a particular place or circumstance but rarely occur other times) then stress must be entertained as a possibility (like fear of heights, ladders, flying, etc.) phobias are readily treatable, once you've ruled out medical problems that can prompt identical symptoms. See your doctor as to how to go about addressing this issue.
