What are the symptoms of someone with beginning stages of thyroid cancer/thyroid tumor?

None or a lump. Most patients have no symptoms at all and the thyroid cancer is found incidentally on another imaging study. Some patients will have a palpable nodule in their thyroid that their doctor finds on routine physical.
A lump. Usually a lump is discovered. It is painless, and it does not affect thyroid hormone levels. Often the lump is discovered by a doctor on an exam, as it is difficult for a person to feel thyroid lumps and distinguish it from other structures on the neck. See your endocrinologist.
