Other possibilities.: The Thyroid is not the only endocrine gland that affects metabolism, mood, menstrual cycles and hair follicle activity in women your age. It's quite possible that you are experiencing peri-menopause, or that you have Vitamin D deficiency. Has the enlargement of the thyroid gland been confirmed/examined with ultrasound?

Advised that I have a chain of deep swollen lymphnodes on right sided jugular vein? None on left side.  What could cause this?  Fna booked for 2 weeks

Agree with FNA.: That's certainly concerning. Infection is doubtful given that it's a whole chain. Any other enlarger nodes elsewhere. Might consider hodgkins lymphoma in someone your age. Usual head and neck cancers seen in much older patients. Pet scan worthwhile and would order. ...Read more

Swollen left tonsil, pain left side of my Adam's apple. Hurts to touch, swallow, turn my head to the right. Does this sound like a thyroid issue?

Swollen left tonsil, pain left side of my Adam's apple. Hurts to touch, swallow, turn my head to the right. Does this sound like a thyroid issue?

Not thyroid: Your thyroid is in a different place than your tonsils. You may have a tonsil abscess. You need to see your doctor or an ENT for further evaluation. If you have a tonsil abscess it may need to be drained. Your thyroid effects your metabolism--weight, energy, concentration, mood. If it is swollen it could cause you to have trouble swallowing. It should not cause problems with the tonsil. ...Read more

Swollen lymph node at right side of my neck, but left side seems ok.  Why the difference?

If you have an infected gum or tooth, have a one-sided tonsillar infection, or other similar conditions, this may be the explanation. If the node continues to enlarge, changes character (becomes hard, fixed, tender, warm to touch, etc.), or fails to resolve in time, have it examined by a doctor. ...Read more
