Unlikley: Too many symptoms... Neck and back pain - highly unlikely to be anything serious and certainly not a common symptom of thyroid cancer. Cough?... Could be anything - viral respiratory infection/allergies. Lumps: anything larger than 2cm or presence for more than 2 weeks should be checked - see your local ent.

Possible: You need to consult a physician. These issues may or may not be related. The neck lumps could simply be enlarged lymph nodes due to infection of the lungs (explaining the cough) or something more serious.
