These past 9 mos. I have been experiencing throat/neck pain. At first I thought it was from not drinking enough water with my night meds. I went through a few lidocaine cocktails at work to get me by, but they didn't work,lol. The pain has gotten to be quite bothersome lately, which prompted me to get it checked. My wonderful ARNP found a lump ... See morethat she felt needed to be examined by an ultrasound. I had the test on October 9,2009. I recieved results and the report read of a hypoechoic noncystic nodule with vascular character 1.2cm maximum dia. in the lower pole right lobe of my thyroid gland. There is also a 4mm vascular nodule hypoechoic focus centrally observed in the left lobe. The gland is otherwise homogeneous in echotexture and normal in vascularity and normal in size. I was told by my Doctor that I would need to find an oncologist. I was scheduled for the next step which was a thyriod scan. It was fine.
