I've had a lump sensation in my throat for over 3 months now, which the doctor keeps telling me is most likely due to sinus problems etc. I suppose this is possible, although it doesn't feel like it to me. It isn't possible to feel the lump by externally examining my throat. Has anyone ever subsequently been diagnosed as having thyroid nodules or lumps after an ultrasound that weren't obvious from a physical examination of the throat? My doctor is refusing to refer me for an ultrasound and I'm just not comfortable ignoring a lump in my throat on the basis of a probability.
I have not been diagnosed with a thyroid condition as yet, but latest tests show - TSH 5.22 (0.27 - 4.2)
fT4 15.1 (12.0 – 22.0) fT3 5.3 (3.1 – 6.8), Thyroglobulin Antibody 19.2 (0 - 115) and Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies 7.9 (0 – 34).
I have made a separate post with all my results which Grey Goose has very kindly advised looks like I may be in the process of developing Hashis - but I just wondered about the lump and if I should be pushing for an ultrasound, or waiting to see if the lump becomes more obvious?
