It's unlikely that the goiter (swollen thyroid) is related to the mass in your chest, but not impossible.

Why not post those "normal" levels, so we can get a better idea of what's going on?  Please include the reference ranges from your lab report, since these vary from lab to lab and must come from your own report.
