New lump

Over two years ago I had thyroid cancer and they removed half thyroid and I was very lucky that the 2cm nodule they removed only had 7mm of cancer. They decided to leave the other half of my thyroid and I have check up every six months. But two weeks ago I found a lump left side of my neck just above collarbone. Has anyone else had similar experience any advice would be welcomed . thank you

Loulou, Thyroid nodules are generally very slow growing so unless you had a sizeable nodule on your last scan I think it is very unlikely to be a thyroid nodule. You should have your GP examine the lump though, it may be a thyroid or other type of cyst.


Been to doctors and he sent me back to surgeon they think it is cancer again. Had biopsy tonight if it postive then more surgery. I can't believe I am back in this nightmare again . Any advice out there and has anyone else experience this


Loulou, I'm sorry to hear this and hope the biopsy will be benign and you don't have too long to wait for results.

My hemilobectoomy was cancerous and I had completion surgery 3 months later to remove the rest of the thyroid due to risk factors but it was clear of cancer.

You might want to post a new question asking other members whether it has happened and what they did as updates aren't easily seen.
