I've got a lump in my throat that feels like its right in front my thyroid. It feels hard and weird to touch and I feel like I need to clear my throat a lot. Could this be a thyroid issue?
I have an appointment to see my dr on Mon, but its playing on my mind so I'd love some reassurance from anyone who's experienced anything similar that its not likely to be something scary and serious.
I do have other symptoms of thyroid problems - heart palpitations, occasionally trembling hands, fatigue. And I have symptoms of generally being unwell - terrible sinus, slight scratchy throat, headachy . And my asthma has flared up.
The lump is freaking me out. Everytime I put moisturiser on I feel it, and feel that its decidedly different than how my neck used to be.
Anyone ever had a lump like this? (I'm hoping its thyroid issues, or an infection of some kind as those are relatively easy things to fix with medication I believe).

Ive got a multi nodular goiter. ...basically several lumps on my thyroid. I have and endocrinologist who monitors mine.
How big is the lump?

I'd say its about 3cm across. Rectangular/oval in shape by the feel.

Yes I have serval large lumps on mine. I don't need med just need to checked for growth every 2 years. I have had them for 20 odd years.
You need to have it ultrasounded and see a endo.

I couldn't get in to see my normal Dr so had to see someone new and he was very condescending and rude. He found the lump, looked worried and gave me a referral for an ultrasound (appt booked for tomorrow). He didn't say anything about what it might be. I asked if I should have blood tests done too and he said, 'oh yes I guess so'. One of the worst appointments I've had. I felt like crying afterwards. I've also been sick for quite a while and he just dismissed all those symptoms and acted like he didn't believe me. I just feel so miserable right now.

I glad he gave the ultrasound and blood test even he was a drop kick of a Dr.
The tests don't take very long so at least you should have some answers soon.
I am here to chat anytime. I had a thyroid cancer scare when I was pregnant with ds3. I have that thyroid problem for 20 odd years.

My friend had a goiter too, not sure on spelling. It was monitored for a while but if was growing too fast. She had to have her thyroid taken out. She's on medication but doing fine, doesn't feel any different without it.
