Dark Circles On Neck Thyroid Nodule
Generally not: Look for other causes. One uncommon cause is vocal cord dysfunction, which can feel just like an asthma attack, but is not relieved with inhalers. Esophageal spasm is another cause. Getting stuck on a preconceived diagnosis prevents the proper one from being made. See your doc, and describe your symptoms in detail to him, in order for the proper diagnosis to be made. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What can I do if my thyroid nodule in my neck biospy came back bengin is there anything to worry about?
Needle or Surgical?: Was the biopsy a needle biopsy or an excisional surgical biopsy? If surgical, then the nodule was removed and it is benign and you probably have little to worry about. If a needle biospy then you need to know if there was adequate tissue for diagnosis. If not, then you can't be sure there is nothing there. Sometimes a repeat biopsy is suggested or a followup sonogram of the nodule. ...Read more
Have 6 monitored thyroid nodules. Last 2 days felt uncomfortable, bit pain front left neck. When touched, feels bit lumpy. Gland or thyroid problem?
Possible hashimoto: I would like more information to be able to assess what is going on. Typically, you will not be able to feel your neck nodules if they are thyroid nodules unless they are at least 1.5 cm and more likely 2 cm. If you have 6 nodules that you are watching, my guess is that they are smaller than this. You have a scheduled U/S on the 2nd of June?

Studies show that about 3-5% of nodules with benign pathology reports, are malignant on further testing. ...Read more
I have thyroid nodules that have grown in number and size and now I am having neck pain. The nodules are less than 1 cm. I am very irritable also. ?
Thyroid nodule: Lymph nodes in the neck frequently swell and then regress during minor viral illnesses. So this may have nothing to do with a thyroid nodule. However, that thyroid nodule should be worked up. Ideally with an ultrasound-directed biopsy and you should be seen by an endocrinologist. A thyroid cancer can spread to lymph nodes, although the more likely explanation is a virus. ...Read more
Known thyroid nodule , colloid area recurrent cysts , now pressure/pulling on neck especially lifting arm?
I woke a few days ago with pain and swelling on the lower front of neck. I can feel restriction wben swallowing. Could my thyroid nodules be reason?
It is unlikely: It is unlikely for a thyroid nodule to cause pain and swelling. Pain/swelling in the midline front of the neck may represent thyroiditis, inflamed thyroid gland, or superinfected thyroglossal cyst. However, if you feel any lumps that are getting larger, or have been in your neck for longer than 2 weeks, see your doctor right away, as this can represent infected or possibly cancerous lymph nodes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
