Settle down!  Your doctor is testing your thyroid levels and doing most likely
a complete blood panel.  These would be standard test for what your presenting. I have thyroid non-cancer tumors on my thyroid.  Lots of them.
Many people do and only 5 percent of those people have thyroid cancer.
Before you step off the Clift into that mountain of crackers - get the tests back and ask your doctor what the chances are of it being cancer.  When he sends
you for a fine needle aspiration of that lump...don't flip out- that's how they
can find out if its cancer or not.  
Best To You
