Thank you Dr. Yes I have no problem with my thyroid. Im not hypo nor hyper .. and I did blood tests all my blood rests are normal .. The scan only indicated that I have one large nodule on both sides. I did not do a thyroid scan ..

I think that you should have a thyroid scan done and then proceed with biopsy if there is a cold nodule detected in the thyroid scan.
Particularly with your difficulty in swallowing you should have a biopsy done to make sure everything is okay.
By biopsy I mean a needle biopsy or in other words FNAc (fine needle aspiration cytology).
