My sis, had total thyroidectomy in 2012 due to papillary thyroid ca, she feels a lump on her neck, tg and scan were normal, what could it be?
Show it to her docto: After surgery for cancer, one needs to have follow up visits with the doctor who did the operation. The doctor can examine her and let you/her know what it is that she is feeling. If the surgeon is not available, she can go see any doctor like an internist or an endocrinologist whom she saw in the beginning of 2012 (before surgery was done). ...Read more

I have a damaged vocal cord due to Thyroidectomy, lately I noticed an internal lump above collar bone left to the neck, could it be related?
I have a question I have these lumps on my neck from my previous surgery my doctor thinks there muscle knots can they be seen on a MRI?
Yes: MRI has great resolution for muscle, but it'd be a VERY expensive test to just diagnose some muscle knots. There may be more serious things that an MRI can pick up, i.e. enlarged lymph nodes in your neck, but this would be unlikely unless you were also having fevers, fatigue, night sweats, or some sign of infection. Try warm compresses and a massage to see if they'll go away. ...Read more
I have a lump the size of the meatball on the front of my neck. If I see a doctor will they likely recommend surgery?
Sounds big: Definitely get that looked at asap! If you start having difficulty breathing, especially when on your back, go to er. As to what it is, can be goiter, cyst, lymph node or other things. Workup starts with exam, then may lead to imaging like ultrasound, ct or mri. May get biopsy and blood draws. But first step is going to doctor! ...Read more

Hard to say: One can get estimates by asking around. There are doctor's bills for office visits, the actual surgery, and hospital visits if he charges separately for hospital care days (presuming one has to stay in the hospital). Hospital bills are hard to predict, and there are separate bills for lots of different items such as labs, meds, x-rays, etc... And also anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists. ...Read more
I'm having thyroid surgery in two weeks. Should I start trying to eat less and what kind of food should I be eat?
Yes: For thyroid surgery, an anterior neck incision is used and the risk is low. The recurrent laryngeal nerve is examined during placement and removal of the anesthetic breathing tube, your surgeon will be well trained to avoid this nerve during surgery. If the nerve becomes dysfunctional, it is usually temporary. Take family/friend to ask these details of your surgeon. Be well. ...Read more
I'm 6days now from thyroid surgery after an hour I fell dizzy and after I'm vomit and after vomit I'm fell okay now is that normal thank you?

Sometimes swallowing can be difficult (especially liquids) and the voice can be hoarse for the first month (about 10% of people). Energy levels can fluctuate because of the surgery, as well as, thyroid hormone levels changing. Other specific issues can be addressed by your surgeon. ...Read more
Thyroidectomy: I have a total thyroid surgery last Friday morning and now I have constant coughing? ANS: complications of thyroidectomy are common in my experience.

Let us know what you find out. ...Read more

Where is a good place to get this in florida or east coast to get endoscopic thyroid surgery dan?
Why?: There are a number of centers near florida that do endoscopic thyroid surgery, like tulane la, atlanta ga. The only real advantage to this type of thyroid surgery is that you would have a smaller scar in the neck or no scar if done through the axilla (arm pit). However, the procedure usually takes more time, therefore more anesthesia. There is no evidence that complications are less frequent. ...Read more

I had thyroid surgery 6 years ago and I seem to be developing a very raspy voice, I could it be related to my surgery? I am very prone to scar tissue.
Hoarseness: It is fairly doubtful that it would be related to the thyroid surgery, as you should have developed voice symptoms early after the surgery, not delayed. Scar tissue would not typically change your voice. There may be other reasons for the raspiness like allergies, postnasal drip or laryngopharyngeal reflux. See an ENT for fiberoptic laryngeal exam. ...Read more
