  • From what I understand, it is the swelling in the neck that you are bothered about. If the swelling is in the midline, it may be from thyroid. The best way would be for you to consult your oncologist and let her have a look at it. If need be, they may do a sonography as well. And please don't worry. Just ensure you take steps in the right direction
