Have 1cm hypoechoic, solid, vascular thyroid nodule. Am now having minor difficulty swallowing & feels like something stuck in throat. Next appt is jan 8th, should I wait till then to see dr?

1 cm is quite small. A 1cm thyroid nodule is not likely to cause swallowing difficulty. However, the stress of knowing and worrying about this nodule is likely the cause--the medical term is called globus hystericus or a sensation/feeling of a lump in the throat. 1 cm size is relatively low risk of being cancer, but should follow just to make sure. For now, don't worry too much. Consult doc. Good luck. Read more...
