thyroid??? endocrinologist... what to expect?

For the last year my neck as been swollen. It started to affect my job... anxiety attacks, not feeling well. I've had ultrasounds, ct scans, mri and bloodwork. The doctors have found a nodule on either side of my thyroid and minor bulging cervical spine discs. I have seen my doctor numerous times, an ent and now I'm going to see an endocrinologist. I've have had all of these tests done and my neck is swollen above the collarbone on both sides... now I can see a lump under my adam's apple that moves when I swallow. Amazingly it was my gynecologist that first discovered my swollen neck a year ago and said to me last week my neck was still looking like a problem. I don't know what the endocrinologist is going to do at the appt next Friday and I'm worried. I've had so many tests done and have yet to be given any answers. Please help....

Can you post actual thyroid related test results, along with their reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and must come from your own report? Have you been diagnosed with an actual thyroid condition?  If so, which one?

The endo will review all of the blood work, and other tests, possibly order some more, then make a determination as to the next step.  

We can't really make any assessment, without seeing actual labs and test results.

Toxic goiter comes to mind. Hypethyroidism/Graves.

I am sure your Endo will check into that..
