Could it be thyroid cancer?

From: Chazzaem1998 - 2 years 2 weeks ago

Okay so for nearly a year i think, ive had a swollen node under my jaw and the right side of my neck and ear aches constantly! I was diagnosed with hashimotos about 2 years ago but the endocrinologist never offered me an ultrasound. He has now discharged me!

Im pretty sure the right side of my neck feels bigger that the left, i cant feel any lumps, it just feels swollen along with the node on the same side!

Im terried of going to the doctors as i feel as though they think im crazy and making things up! They never take me seriously! Im absolutely terrified that this could be thyroid cancer which could have spread to my lungs!

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

It's been 6 weeks since you posted so hopefully you have already gone to the doctor but if you haven't, do not delay. It could be one of many different things, serious or not serious, but you'll never know if you don't go. Don't let your worries about what the doctor thinks keep you from doing what you need to do. You must be an advocate for yourself.
