I have a growth or lump on right side just above Adams apple. I thought it was an ingrown hair, but it hasn't gone away. No pain. Thyroid nodules?

20, male. Mild pain when swallowing, headaches, lump on neck to the left of my adams apple, general discomfort in neck and enlarged lymphnode on left side (no changes in voice or breathlessness/trouble breathing) - Could this be throat cancer? Thanks

Cancer unlikely: You are not likely to have throat cancer. Your issue may be with the thyroid gland, however, it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a doctor, please see one.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

There is a way to trim the thyroid cartilage down to make it less prominent, but you will be left with a scar in the neck. Good luck; not easy to fix. ...Read more
