Swollen Thyroid

I take synthroid to treat my hypothyroidism.

For reasons I don't want to go into I didn't take my medication for a week and began taking it again this morning.
I just noticed that there is a swollen area (nodule) that could be on/near my thyroid.

I took Ibuprofen in the hopes of reducing the swelling.

Could neglecting to take my medication be the cause of this?
If so, will resuming my medication correct the problem or should I see my doctor Monday morning?
