What symptoms did you have?

I am new to the forum and pretty scared.  I have pain on the right side of my throat when swallowing and voice getting hoarse.  I can feel no large lumps but have had hypothyroidism for about 10 years.   I have complained of a mildy funny feeling swallow to my Endo before and he felt around and said not to worry.   Now I am worried that I may have waited to long as these symptoms have gotten worse in last month or so.  Can anyone speak to the symptoms they noticed before they were diagnosed with thyroid cancer and how long it was going on as related to progression of disease?   I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and recently have had blood work indicating mildly elevated liver enzyme (AST at 49).

thank you!

I have Hashimoto as well diagnosed 21/2 yrs. ago, I also started getting the pain in my throat and trouble swallowing, I as well as my reg. Dr. thought ther was a lump and I went back to my Endo she put a scope down my nose and found my Vocal Cords wew a mess, I have since seen an ENT and he will be doing laser surgery on my vocal cords. He said the build up on my cords has been for a long time and this surgery will help the hoarseness and the swallowing as well as breathing, all symptons blamed on thyroid. Perhaps you should your Endo to check you out.
