This is Dr. David
this hard lump could be due to scar tissue from the thyroid surgery.
or it could be due to a swollen lymph node helping you fight off infection.
you should get an ultrasound of your neck to find out what the hard lump is.
I had my thyroid gland destroyed by high doses of radioactive iodine because of overactive thyroid
and I am on 112 mcg of synthroid a day myself.
talk to your doctor about getting a neck exam and a neck ultrasound to see what it could be
how large is this hard lump?
3 cm is good size.
that is more than 1 inch in size.
2.5cm is about 1 inch.
sounds like you definitely need to get an ultrasound of your neck
this will tell if the lump is solid or filled with fluid.
this could be a cyst filled with fluid or an enlarged lymph node
chance of cancer is small at your age of 32.
