This is Dr. David
you could be feeling normal cartilage of your thyroid cartilage or your voice box which is also called the larynx.
thyroid gland would not feel hard
if you have a history of excessive anxiety disorder, this can make you feel a lump in your throat type sensation.
that is good you don't have a sore throat and change in voice.
why the dislodge?
the ultasound will be able to tell for sure if the thyroid gland is normal or not.
i have to move it back from left to right to put in place?
I am not sure I understand what you mean by you feel a dislodge in your throat.
that is from your thyroid cartilage cracking and moving.
you have soft cartilage in your throat like your thyorid cartilage
there is a distinct solid lump however ..not cyst etc
and also your hyoid bone above your larynx.
feels like bone?
these can move and shift.
the left side has no solid lump
sorry left does right does not
well the ultrasound will be able to tell for sure. what is going on there.
i guess with my generel health being good it ought to be something not too bad perhaps hey?
sometimes you can have normal anatomy being normally asymmetric in the bones of your throat.
most likely it is nothing.
but the ultrasound will be a good check.
that is good your health is good.
i may have an underactive thyroid as gp was not overly concerned withthe hard lump more over withthe thyroid she felt?
what is your TSH level?
she put me for ut in 4 weeks
that is the thyroid stimulating hormone level
which tells if your thyroid hormone levels are proper for your body.
high TSH levels above 3.0 means you are low in your thyroid hormone
id get excessivly tired
low TSH levels below 0.3 means you have too much thyroid hormone level
blood testing is the only way to know if your thyroid hormone levels are normal or not.
make sure your doctors test your TSH level
am sure that will follow
