Thanks for the info. I thought the itch might be from thyroid meds. or matter of fact, any meds.   I had a reaction to brown dye in meds. which made me itch starting at pelvic area, moving to the sides of the under arm  and then up to my neck and side of face/chin area. So I was relating to that when I read neck itch.
I have read where all over itching can be related to thyroid. Dry itchy skin also, etc.  Anything is possible and nothing surprising.
Good luck with the nodule results, I hope it comes out
non-cancer. The same with your surgery.

I don't know exactly why you are itching, but during some of my worst times with Graves' Disease, my neck and throat itched so bad around my thyroid I had to wear turtle neck shirts to cover up the marks because I couldn't stop.  Talk to your doctor.

I have the same problem with my neck and scalp. Sometimes the rest of my body too. Not sure what it is, but the itching started when my thyroid symptoms got worse.
