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

I have a 1.4cm nodule on my right lobe. I've been clearing my throat for several days. But I've been spitting out mucus. Is that thyroid related?
No: Small thyroid nodules do not cause any physical pain or sensory changes. Frequent throat clearing is due to a sensation of "globus" usually related to acid reflux or sometimes post nasal drip. Based on the ata 2009 guidelines, this nodule should be evaluated with a fine needle aspiration (biopsy). ...Read more
Can throat cancer not thyroid cancer spread to thyroid bed? I had thyroid cancer 2 years ago and a follow up ultrasound found 7mm nodule on thy bed.
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
Had thyroid us. I felt a constant lump in throat. Have "complex hypoechoic nodule (solid mass) 3.9x1.5x1.1cm (l) & 4.5x1.5x1.4cm (r)." can it be cancer?
Possible: Nodules that size although most often not cancer need to be evaluated further. Bilateral or multiple nodules are more likely to be benign. Next step should be fine needle biopsies (fna). This is just what it sounds like- a small needle placed into the nodule to obtain some cells for pathology. If benign, can leave alone. But if having symptoms simply from size of nodule might still need surgery. ...Read more

Lump in my right throat. TSH, T4 normal, UTZ results: slightly enlarged right thyroid gland with complex cystic & small nodules. Should I be worried?
More No than Yes: The thyroid is a cystic gland controlled by hypothalamus (TSH) via anterior pituitary (TRF) to manufacture & secrete T3+T4. If thyroid cysts coalesce or locally enlarge, then cysts large enough to see via current US technology can be seen. This still indicates something not optimal but it is solid nodules which are far more worrisome &, though less frequent, far more likely to be thyroid cancer. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Hope your biopsies are benign.Get a more detailed answer ›
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
What can I do if my thyroid nodule in my neck biospy came back bengin is there anything to worry about?
Needle or Surgical?: Was the biopsy a needle biopsy or an excisional surgical biopsy? If surgical, then the nodule was removed and it is benign and you probably have little to worry about. If a needle biospy then you need to know if there was adequate tissue for diagnosis. If not, then you can't be sure there is nothing there. Sometimes a repeat biopsy is suggested or a followup sonogram of the nodule. ...Read more
Post-inflammatory node on my neck. Growing thyroid nodule that was previously ruled benign. What to do?
Consider re-biopsy: Benign nodules can grow just like malignant ones. Just because it is larger does not necessarily mean it is bad, but one should consider re-biopsy to verify that it is benign. Studies show that about 3-5% of nodules with benign pathology reports, are malignant on further testing. ...Read more
