about 9 years ago I was diagnosed with an enlarged thyroid, I was scanned and it was found to be benign. I was discharged and thought no more of it. i also had a blood test and was also told my thyroid function was normal
anyway it is still there and i think it has got slightly bigger over the years, it is not visible to see, doesn't hurt or cause me any problems, but can be felt to touch if you see what i mean.
i went to the doctors and have been referred for a scan, and have had bloods taken. but now i am absolutely sick with fear and terrified its going to be something awful, esp as i have had it for years, is it possible for these things to change and no longer be benign? i have googled and i know sometimes it can be cancer
if anyone can help i would be very grateful. the wait for the scan / results etc will be agony as i suffer from anxiety anyway. i should also add i recently had a baby, and have had 5 pregnancies in 8 years (2 miscarriages and 3 live births) i mention that as have heard pregnancy hormones can affect the thyroid. i am 33 if this helps as well.
