Goitre

Hi just wondered if anyone knows if a goitre can be misdignosed? Have had a swelling in my neck for years & I know it's just not right !! I now have a lump on the side of my windpipe too. The swelling was scanned about 10 years ago & was said that its gristle !!

I have lots of health issues terrible choking episodes & my thyroid t4 is 11 ( range over 12 ) but my tsh is normal . Any advise greatly appreciated 😃

Craword1961, a goitre is a swelling of the thyroid gland. Lumps may be nodules. Has the lump on the side of the windpipe been ultrasound scanned?

No as it's fairly recent but will mention it nxt time I go to dr

Crawford1961, if the lump has appeared suddenly you should make an appointment with your GP for it to be examined.
