Papillary thyroid CA. Enlarged tongue


I will have surgery next week because I have thyroid cancer. My tongue feels too large for my mouth.  I actually have to curl it behind my lower teeth to avoid protrusion and it causes difficulty swallowing.  Is this part of the thyroid cancer or should I be looking into other causes?
