A 34-year-old member asked:

What does a nodule in your thyroid feel like?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Quang Nguyen
Specializes in Endocrinology
Depends on size: You might not feel anything if it's small. Otherwise, it could feel like a lump, a node and if it's big enough, it can feel like a growth/mass on your neck. If it's liquid, like a cyst, it could be soft. If it's a solid growth, it could be rubbery and if it's calcified, it could have a rock/hard feel to it.

Yes: Vocal nodules are usually the result of voice misuse and abuse. Re-learning how to use your voice correctly with good vocal therapy and maintaining those good voicing behaviors is often curative for vocal nodules.

Benign solid nodule growing fast. Normal TSH but pressing against my windpipe. Feeling dizzy and tired. Could the nodule cause it?

Needs to evaluate: Yes, a growing nodule that has become symtomatic should be evaluated further. The thyroid test tell you that the thyroid is functioning okay but a large nodule can compress local organs causing other symptoms. Speak with your doctor who can order other imaging studies to evaluate how the nodule is affecting nearby anatomy.

Don't think so: I do not think so .Buzzing sounds in ears can be from stress, from aspiirin in certain pts. But thyroid nodule is a different problem nd needs ultrasoud and biopsy depends on the nodule size /vascularity.
