Observation: It sounds like you were found to have a small thyroid nodule of 5 mm. These are common in the population, usually benign. Typically they are followed with repeat ultrasound in 6-12 months to see if it changes. You should have thyroid function tests done as well. ...Read more

I woke a few days ago with pain and swelling on the lower front of neck. I can feel restriction wben swallowing. Could my thyroid nodules be reason?

It is unlikely: It is unlikely for a thyroid nodule to cause pain and swelling. Pain/swelling in the midline front of the neck may represent thyroiditis, inflamed thyroid gland, or superinfected thyroglossal cyst. However, if you feel any lumps that are getting larger, or have been in your neck for longer than 2 weeks, see your doctor right away, as this can represent infected or possibly cancerous lymph nodes! ...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

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
