Common Questions and Answers about Large thyroid in neck

I don't know anything about your other symptoms because I had thyroid cancer but had no symptoms except a lump in my neck and normal bloodwork. Have you had an ultrasound or anything? That can show the doctor if it is a cyst or solid nodule or complex. That was my first step even before going to an endo. Maybe you could get in with another endocrinologist or call them and tell them to put you on a cancellation list.

About 12 days ago I began experiencing fast growing neck masses on the SIDES of my neck. An ultra-sound showed an enlarged thyroid and also presence of nodules. I am being refered to a specialist for further testing. My question is, since the masses are on the SIDES of my neck, why should I not assume the worse?
is usually found (at base of neck in the middle). I was told that the enlarged thyroid, which the doctor referred to as a possible multinodular (ultrasound results) was the goiter. I am a little confused on how this is usually treated. When it is this big but not in the form of a goiter how do they treat it? I have been on Synthoid for almost 10 years now (150 for 6 months).
I had a a large tumor taken out in may07, it was benige, but now there is something going on with my neck again, could it be another tumor on the right thyroid, blood work has come back with high numbers again, feel really bad. help!

Have you had a thyroid blood work up done? If so it is best to post your test results and the ranges provided with them, this way the more experienced members can see where you are at regarding your thyroid, weight gain and depression are symptoms of an underactive thyroid, are you sure it was your T4 that is high? I would think for underactive your T4 would be low and your TSH would be high. Anyway post your labs from the test if not, you can request them from your MD.
Every single cell in your body needs T3 in order to function. Cytomel is a very potent thyroid hormone replacement; it's not meant to be a weight loss aid or used to enhance sports performance; it should never used for anything other than its intended purpose, which is to relieve hypothyroidism. If you had been on a very large dose for a long period of time, it might have caused some issues; however, your dose of 2.5-7.
I also have neck swelling, my thyroid gland is enlarged, hard time swallowing, dry tongue ( no matter how much i drink, eat popscicles) Back of my neck is so stiff it hurts to move it and on and off over the last four months my cervicle gland( i think that is what it is called) is swollen to about the size of a large marble. Often when all this happens i have a hard time pronunciating words. I have been tested for thyroiditis , my Tsh, t3,t4 are are normal.
I recently had an ultrasound of my thyroid after feeling a lump on the right side of my neck. The ultrasound report is below. There is a history of Thyroid Cancer in my family. My TSH levels are normal and I am 30 years old, mother of two. "The right lobe of the thyroid gland is enlarged measuring 4.9 cm in the craniocaudad dimension by 1.9 cm in AP dimension by 2.6 cm in transverse dimension.
After many different doses of Levothyroxine, 125 mg was finally successful in getting her level down to 3.4. Today she went in for a thyroid ultrasound. We knew there was a mass on the left side of her neck, but we hoped it would be small and non cancerous. As the ultrasound tech did the ultrasound, she revealed that the mass on the left side was huge (the biggest she'd ever seen), extending from just under her jaw to just above her collarbone.
I am a 21 year old female and I recently discovered a large mass on the bottom right base of my neck and I believe it is the thyroid since it moves up and down when I swallow. However, it is just the right lobe and I have heard that this could be a cause for concern. I don't feel tired and haven't gained any significant weight, but I am spotting between periods. I can't get to a doctor for another two weeks so I am a bit worried. Can anyone help?
In most cases, a lump that moves is better news than a hard, stationary lump. However, it wouldn't hurt to have an ultrasound just to be sure, so ask your doctor to order one. If he refuses, ask him to refer you to someone else. Good luck to you!
I would see a thyroid specialist (endo). The mass is large, however Hurthle changes are not necessarily suspicious (many mis-understand this). Would check thyroid antibodies as Hashimotos can cause similar FNA pattern. If the mass is bothering you (ie tightness, hoarseness, trouble swallowing), then surgery makes sense. Frozen section is sometimes helpful to make a decision.
My endo said to wait six months and have another biopsy to make sure there weren't any changes. Recently I have been having pain in my neck on the side that the nodule is on. It feels like my glands are swollen on this side. Is this anything to worry about with regards to the nodule, or am I just going stir-crazy??!! I am trying to put it at the back of my mind but whenever I feel any sort of pain etc. I immediately think things may have gotten worse.

I believe I may have had the goiter maybe for 1 yr as I noticed a difference in my swallowing and neck. I was in a rollover car accident 4yrs ago that caused whiplash, stiff neck pain that I still have. When I move my neck I sometimes still feel/hear crackling. I'm on generic synthroid 2 wks. My goiter has grown since the past 3 months and right side of my neck is thick, there is an area that seems to be attached to the goiter.
I went to my Endocrinologist this week, had blood work. He varified I have a large lump at the base of my thyroid. I need a biopsy also. My Dr. called me yesterday pm. and all my blood work is fine and I can stay on the synthroid 25mg if I want to. I do need a biopsy because the lump is large. I started the 25mg synthroid about 60 days ago. I have pain in my neck on the left side goes down into my shoulder. What is this all about? I am confused?
Hello, Two possibilities are there for such lumps.It can be a thyroid cyst or a swollen lymph node. A thyroid cyst is a fluid-filled sac located in the thyroid gland. Cysts may be small (< 1cm) or large and they may develop slowly or appear suddenly. Treatment of thyroid cyst involves fine needle aspiration of the fluid. The aspirated fluid is then sent for histopathological examination to look out for any malignancy.In svere cases surgery may be required.
so i've been experiencing some rather odd pain in the front/right side of the neck... it rather feels like somone is pushing on my throat with extreme force from the outside... and i was just curious if anything could be causing this having to deal with my thyroid? the pain comes and goes, lasting up to 5 minutes at a time. it makes me a little bit light headed and is just really annoying. when it started i'd get the sudden pain maybe once a day... but now it's gotten more frequent...
i have recently discovered a very large and hard lump at the base of my neck to the center and right side. It seems to extend from the very base of my neck (where you swallow) down toward my clavicle. I have had Hashimoto's for about 30 years and take my meds daily. I have also been experiencing hoarseness that will not go away despite reflux treatment. I also have a frequent cough but I do have allergies and get weekly allergy injection. My last thyroid labs in January were good.
My Boxer who is six years old has produced a large size - the size of a golf ball in her neck. It started out with her falling down the stairs and her limping. I thought she broke her leg or hurt it. When I brought her to the vet they told me she had an ear infection and she was feeling the pain in her paw. She has been on an antibiotic and seems to be doing better, however the lump in her neck is getting bigger and bigger.
Hello again... some time ago, you answered a question for me about thyroglossal cysts and thyroid cancer. You asked me to keep you informed, so here goes... CT showed my thyroid itself to be just fine. However, there is a "soft tissue mass" in the notch of my thyroid cartilage "continuing into and silhouetting with the strap muscles". It does not have cystic attenuation, so the radiologist doesn't believe it is a TGDC.
after that, a hell lot of pain occured in that tooth and after 2 days or so, this hard feeling in my neck occured, and it is still as it is, no change in size i think, i have no pain in the area of neck. but if i work late on computer i get a streched feeling in that area rising to the ear. also if i dont eat for a long time same feeling occurs, how ever i feel a little normal after i eat or sleep.
I am concerned about her as she seems to believe that this doesn't need treatment. Thyroid problems run in her family and her mother had a very large goiter during pregnancy back in the 50's and her doctors did not treat it. I too was recently dx'd with a goiter which is very small. I know first hand the feeling of having something in the back of my throat and sometimes while sleeping I have problems with coughing, etc. I am being treated at this time for the goiter.
I found a large lump on the right hand side of my neck, my voice has been hoarse for last year or so and I've got a feeling that something is stuck in my throat all the time. My doctor said I've got a growth in my thyroid gland and I've to go for an ultrasound on Tuesday. Iam worried about all this, am I just being silly or should I be concerned? Please help.
