Will my enlarged gland in front of neck kill me if it stays big no pain or symptoms also will massaging them hurt it and help the swelling?

Will my enlarged gland in front of neck kill me if it stays big no pain or symptoms also will massaging them hurt it and help the swelling?

See ENT doctor: It is unclear how long you have had this, where is it located and how large it is. It could be an enlarged lymph node, a thyroid nodule or goiter, a thyroglossal duct cyst, or other mass. The treatments will all be different, thus it is important to find out the cause. An ear-nose-throat specialist or otolargyngologist, would be someone that could help make this diagnosis and treat it. ...Read more

It : It sounds like you may have an irritated nerve accounting for your weakness. A nerve may be pinched in your neck due to a disc problem or bone spur. However, the pain in the front of your chest is not the typical pattern for a pinched nerve in the neck. If you have on-going chest pain or shortness of breath, you should be evaluated immediately for a cardiac problem. The neck pain and arm weakness make more sense anatomically. You should see a physician who can evaluate this and make recommendations for further testing (such as and mri) and further treatment (such as physical therapy). Until the cause of this is clarified and until the source of chest pain is identified, I am hesitant to recommend any home treatment. ...Read more

Moveable painless lump in front of neck between my r ear and chin. No other symptoms. Been there 5 plus years. Should I be worried that its cancer?

Moveable painless lump in front of neck between my r ear and chin. No other symptoms. Been there 5 plus years.  Should I be worried that its cancer?

Lymph node: If it has been there and is unchanged for 5 years, cancer is unlikely. That area would be common for a benign reactive lymph node. Also possible to have a lipoma or other benign cyst. Neck region could also be a thyroglossal duct cyst. The best way to find a definitive answer is to see an ENT physician for a possible needle biopsy. ...Read more

Swelling in front of neck present with normal thyroid us and lab results. Goiter? Lymph nodes? Neuro symptoms are present. Who to see? What to ask?

Swelling in front of neck present with normal thyroid us and lab results. Goiter? Lymph nodes? Neuro symptoms are present. Who to see? What to ask?

Swollen neck: It sounds like you're in the middle of a medical assessment of this. The normal thyroid ultrasound pretty much excludes a goiter, and typically this exam would also see, and describe, lymph nodes or other abnormal structures substantial enough cause noticeable swelling. What kind of "neuro symptoms"? I would talk with the Dr. who ordered US. See if there are any clues in that report. Neurologist? ...Read more

Having the front and right side of thyroid removed due to lumps, I have pain shooting up the side of neck into ear, it's a sharp pain is it the lumps?

Thyroid lumps: Usually lumps in the thyroid do not cause pain, but they can be associated with pain, if the thyroid gland is inflamed. It is common for an inflamed thyroid gland to be associated with ear pain. If you are having the lumps removed, hopefully, the biopsy will tell you if the gland is inflamed. ...Read more
