Did your nodules hurt?

Id be really grateful for thoughts on this please. I'm awaiting surgery on a nodule that's suspicious for follicular cancer but obviously as we know, they can't be certain until its taken out. What i want to know is, has anyone had a painful nodule that can be really sore consistently (8 months now), radiating up behind their ear and giving you a sore throat and it still come back as benign after surgery?

Or does pain usually mean cancer?

    I had no symptoms. The only way mine were found was my TSH started rising in my Labs. My endo ordered an Ultra sound and discovered them.

    My neck is always sore. My shoulder has been misaligned and always hurts too.

    This is after 3 surgeries though. For PTC. As for before? No--I don't recall any suspicious pain.

    I don't think pain always equals cancer. But ask your team of doctors. Go to your appts loaded with your questions, no matter how silly/insignificant you think they are. First of all they are neither. And second, a good doctor will patiently listen to and answer all of them.

    Good luck :}
