2.0cm x 1.5cm hard nontender mass. Right side of neck. Nauseated fatigued night sweats. No thyroid. Could this be cancer? TSH 273.4.

2.0cm x 1.5cm  hard nontender mass. Right side of neck. Nauseated fatigued night sweats. No thyroid. Could this be cancer?  TSH 273.4.

Get it evaluated: Hopefully, it is no reason for concern, but such a mass should be evaluated by a doctor. Fatigue and night sweats are common symptoms of thyroid disease, as well as lymphoma. A TSH of 273.4 definitely warrants further evaluation and treatment. It is always better to know a diagnosis than to worry about the worse. Knowledge is power, power to take the correct action to take care of your health. ...Read more

R- side neck pain, decreased appetite, weightloss, drenching night sweats, on/off thyroid swelling dry cough. Clean blood, x-ray, & u/s. Not lymphoma?

Many possibilities.: Lymphoma usually isn't painful, but the other symptoms could fit. However, there are a number of other possibilities. The thyroid swelling is suspicious for thyroiditis. If that is ruled out, ct scan of neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis may be helpful, or possibly a pet/ct.

Night sweat: Your question is not clear but I am guessing your are asking about why you have " swollen lymph node , night sweat, insomnia, loss of appetite"; depression can explain insomnia, loss of appetite, but it does not explain, night sweat and enlarged lymph nodes. Enlarged nodes and night sweat can be from hiv, tb, lymphoma etc.., see your doctor for further evaluation. ...Read more
