I'm a 48 yr old female with no previous thyroid issues.
In the last 8 weeks I've developed a slight cough, trouble swallowing, and a feeling of "pill stuck in throat".
I have a lump in the left side neck and very swollen nodes in my neck, also in my groin.
PCP sent me to Hospital lab and had blood work,(normal) ultrasound and a Nuclear Scan.
They emailed me that everything was normal, that I have a COLD hypoechoic thyroid nodule, 1.6x1.2x1.0 , lymph gland is slightly pushed up. Not to worry, I'm fine!!!! Wow.
Went in and had to pay to ask him for a referral. He said most people like it in email. Told me to go home and not worry about it. I was upset and he is sending me to ENT this week. Am I right that I need a biopsy ?
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Thyroid nodules are growths of cells in the thyroid gland that may be due to malignancy, fluid-filled cysts or made up of thyroid gland cells. These are more common in women than in men and occurrence increases with age. While most thyroid nodules do not cause symptoms, the larger ones can press against other structures in the neck, causing symptoms such as pain in the neck, problems breathing or swallowing. It is best that you have this checked by the specialist or ENT for proper evaluation. Biopsy may help rule out malignancy and may be indicated depending on the evaluation and diagnostic test results. Take care and do keep us posted.
