I was diagnosed with papillary carcinoma 3 years ago. I had a TT followed by RAI x 2. My past 2 tg levels have been less than .1 suppressed. The most recent was done only 2 months ago. For the last month I have been having stabbing pains followed by a dull achiness in my neck from my ear down to my clavicle on the right side. I do not have a large knot but I can feel several small pea sized moveable bumps running up the side of my neck. If this had anything to do with my cancer wouldn't you expect the tg to be elevated? I have never had an ultrasound and I was wondering if I should ask my doctor for one. He does not order them as part of followup apparently.
Thank you for your time
