My daughter, 31, has a hard lump just under her adams apple a little off to the right. It doesn't move..but it goes up and down when she swallows. She said it has been there for about 3 months. No problem swallowing, no pain, etc.. we are going to ENT next wednesday but I am terrified. Jazz

I wouldn't worry needlessly just yet.....could be nearly anything at this point.

Thoughts and Prayers,
John

Good to hear your heading to the ENT that is the place to start.

Please keep in mind that nothing is bad until it is bad. Easy to say and hard to do and I know you can help your daughter be strong.

Please keep us up to date and welcome to a wonderful place for support when it is needed.

Prayers being shouted out for all involved.

John

If I remember correctly, that is what my mom complained about just before she was diagnosed with a thyroid tumor (not cancerous). Keep your chin up and try to think positive!! Let us know how the appt goes.

Hi Jazz. Welcome to the board. Hopefully you won't be here much longer. Around here it ain't nothing until it is. Best to believe that for now. Let us know either way.

Would be, "It's not cancer....."

But if that isn't the case, we're here and willing to provide any support and information sharing that we can..

Best,
John
