Less than a week after my thyroid cyst was drained it is back, harder than before and it is now hurting when I swallow, cough, laugh or to touch. It is worrying me now. I have an appointment on Wednesday with my consultant to get results of FNA and antibodies test so will talk with him then. I am nervous that it has progressed to this so quickly, there was no pain up until today. If anyone else out there has had this problem I would love to hear from you.
