I had a part thyroidectomy in October. Since then I have noticed a kind of protusion centrally below the Adam's Apple. It is not a solid obstruction, nor is it a cyst, I think. It feels like a bit if cartilage or gristle jutting forward and can mostly be felt when my neck is in certain positions. The surgeon dismissed me with ,"there is no lump!" I think he may not have accessed it from the angle he examined me from. My doctor had little trouble locating it and he has referred me to a specialist, but not as an urgent appointment. He doesn't think it's anything to worry about, but says if it increases in size he will do a two week cancer referral for me. In the meantime, I have been waiting for my referred appointment for six weeks so far. Does anyone have experience of this please?
