I found a lump in the bottom of my throat on the right hand side. It is slightly smaller than a marble and slightly tender. It moves up and down when I swallow. I have no thyroid symptoms. I I went to the doctor today and he said that the lump was a vascular formation? That makes no sense to me. It seems rather large to be a vascular. How could he tell the difference between vascular and a thyroid nodule?
i have a lump on my neck and i had a ultrasound done and they said it is a nodule on my thyroid..apparently it is lol..when they did the ultrasound they wanted to check the blood supply..the right side was red, so it looked like i had good blood supply but on the left where i have the walnut sized lump the scan was blue...

I feel worse, weight loss and now have developed a lump at the top of my spine and neck, also on my jaw just in front of my ear on the right.

I noticed last I have a lump on the right side of my neck. I discovered it in the middle of the night, though it was not bothering me thoughout the day that I noticed.

My husbands insurance doesn't start for a few weeks is this something I should be concerned about?
I have developed a lump on the left side of my adams apple, even with it (not above or below). The lump is solid and i can move it a little bit. My throat is not sore, doesnt hurt when i swallow, doesnt hurt if I touch around it, only if I touch the lump. Then it hurts very much. I developed this same lump about 6 months ago and the doctor dismissed it as stress/job related. It did go away a few days later. Any ideas as to what causes this or what it could be?

I have a small marble size lump on the inside of the right side of my neck. It is close to my esphogus and is painiful when I swallow or stretch my neck. It was sudden onset since last week.

Hi there. I have a lump, possibly a swollen gland on the left side of my neck, close to the jaw. According to the charts it looks like the jugulodigastric node and is right on top of the jugular. My best guess to size is just over a half inch. It isn't tender, just swollen. I just quit smoking and I'm 24 years old. I'm not sure how long it has been there, though I suspect its been a while (been monitoring it for a week now). I don't have any other symptoms that I'm aware of. Sounds like cancer?

I ignored them thinking that I just have severe PMS symptoms. About six months ago I noticed a lump on the right side of my neck. The doctors have checked me for diabetes, mono, thyroid, lupus, and many other things. I have also had a CT on the neck and an upper GI. The upper GI came back clear and the ct showed that i had a mass in my neck but they didnt do anything about it. Lymphoma is strong in my family and I am a little nervous. What should I do?

My Dad is a healthy 68 year old with no chronic diseases. He has had a lump in his lower front neck, about an inch left of center for about 2 months. The lump seems almost cyst like, it is bigger than a marble, maybe twice the size of a marble. He can move it around without too much effort, its pliable, its not fixed per se, but it doesn't appear dermatological, meaning there is no redness on the skin or anything. It doesn't hurt at all, is pliable, movable.
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. I am trying to make her an appointment but they don't have any openings until December 4th. Does anyone know what this lump could be? I have tried to look it up online but have had no luck. PLEASE HELP.
I also just noticed that I now have a lump slightly larger than the one in my neck (on the same side) just under my jaw bone (close to my ear). Given that this is the beginning of the Flu season, could this just be the onset of a cold or the flu?
Often these abnormal growths of thyroid tissue are located at the edge of the thyroid gland so they can be felt as a lump in the throat. When they are large or when they occur in very thin individuals, they can even sometimes be seen as a lump in the front of the neck.

It is difficult to comment without examination. Lump in front of the neck could be a thyroid nodule or cancer of thyroid or inflammatory thyroid condition causing multiple lymph nodes to swell in the neck. Other than that it can be infection in the ears cauing the lymph nodes to swell.
Not in the thyroid area? Thyroid is closer toward the base of your neck. I suggest getting an ultrasound of the area.
Hello everyone, I am seeing the specialist on Monday for a small firm lump on my thyroid. I can see it and I can feel it, but what I see and feel is under 1 cm. Not sure the doc will do anything about it, but I need some peace of mind simply because I get a tight feeling and pulsating sensation that keeps reminding me of it and makes me constantly aware it's there. Could anyone else see thier nodule if it was 1 cm or under? Has anyone experienced these other symptoms?
