I have 9mm nodule on thyroid.. Is it normal to have sore throat, ear ache, headaches and congestion.. ?

If you are: Trying to relate this to a 9mm thyroid nodule then you are somewhat off track. A thyroid nodule and what sounds like a self limited upper respiratory tract infection are unrelated conditions. ...Read more

See endocrinologist: It sounds like you have multiple endocrine issues. The cortisol level does not appear correct. Was this a blood cortisol or saliva? Saliva testing for low adrenal function is not valid. You really need to see an endocrinologist to sort this out. ...Read more

I had biopsies of thyroid nodules today my neck muscles are hurting more and feel tight
what should I look for if something did go wrong
my throat is sore
my ears hurt real bad here and there when i move to get up

You : You should have no serious problems from fine needle aspiration biopsy but if you have continued pain or swelling call the doctor who performed the biopsies. You might be achy for about a day. You can feel pain in the ear because of how your nerves work even though it was your thyroid and your ear was not biopsied. This is called referred pain. Sometimes people will tense their neck muscles because of pain elsewhere in the neck. I hope you feel better today and the biopsies are all negative (no cancer). ...Read more

Thyroid nodule is pushing on my throat, coughing, hard to swallow, feels awful.  Dont know size yet, but what indications would it be removed?

Get evaluated: An indication to remove the thyroid due to a nodule is if it's already causing compressive symptoms. However, you need to get an ultrasound first to make sure it's a thyroid module causing your complaint and not something else. ...Read more

I have been experiencing a fullness feeling under my chin, almost tightness that does extend down the front of my throat. I have thyroid nodules but feel this might be too high in the throat for them. Going for an u/s scan tomorrow of thyroid to be sure

Thyroid Nodules: Thyroid nodules are very common. About 1 in 3 people develop them in their lifetime. The reason why we care, is that (in general) 5% of them turn out to be malignant. We also worry if they start to grow & put pressure on other structures in the neck, or become autonomous/overactive. An u/s will be helpful to evaluate. You should also discuss with your Dr. about checking TFTs & Thyroid Abs. ...Read more

See endocrinologist: Maybe. There are a lot of possibilities. You need thyroid function blood tests. Perhaps an ultrasound with biopsy. This could be simple, or it could be complicated. Best to see an endocrinologist to sort things out. As a 19 yo woman, odd are in favor of autoimmune thyroid disease (hashimoto's thyroiditis or graves). ...Read more

Can a throid nodule cause head aches, ears blocked and throat sore ... AT DIFFERENT TIMES. It is not a cold!

Can a throid nodule cause head aches, ears blocked and throat sore ... AT DIFFERENT TIMES. It is not a cold!

No: Hi. Thyroid nodules can be over-active (over produce thyroid hormone) or not and benign or malignant. Most symptoms are due to thyroid function, not mass effect. Whatever doctor is evaluating your thyroid nodule would have checked your thyroid function. So without you stating, we must assume you're not hyperthyroid. In no case would I expect your symptoms to be due to anything to do with thyroid. ...Read more
