Hello, Im a surviving thyroid and ovarian cancer patient. now i have a lump in my face up under the skin. you can not see it, but it does hurt when touched. I want to know can cancer spread from your throat to your face. I have had the radiation treatment for my thyriod surgeries, was told that the radiation would kill off the rest of the cancer tissues. Or because cyst run on my mother side of family, and I have had so many already removed, is there a chance this could be a knew cyst? and it could be cancerous?

Hi there!

Though rare, cancer could spread to the face as well and any suspicious lump/ mass may need an evaluation. It would be best to have this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

I agree with Dr. Kaul.  Please have it checked out.  But try to keep calm.  I had similar and it took 12 VERY long days and mine came back as an infectious granuloma ( cyst that burst and tissue developed around it to protect the infection from spreading)  

Mine was a small lump that showed up in the hospital right after my thyroid surgery and was 1/8" above my incision. They kept telling me it was a lymph node (yeah right).  

I had it taken out and biopsied when it grew  and became red .. thankfully it was 100% benign but what a scare.

Make sure your doc uses plastic surgery techniques.

Please keep us posted~!!

Hello, and thanks,
                       well yesterday was sitting and whole left side of my face swollen up. Went to doctor and was told i had inflamed lymph nodes. Was given antibiotics and sent to have ultrasound done on the left cheek where cyst is and whole area where face was swollen. Now just a waiting game until Wed, to see whats going on. But looking at the ultrasound screen, (i mean I am no doctor) but there were a lot of circles that she was capturing, scary! If you have a clue, would love to hear!!!!!!!Thanks
