Swelling & pain

Good morning friends,

I was found with a benign nodule; however the doctor saw a suspicious lymph node and I had a needle examination. 4 days after I experienced swelling of my nodule & lymph and acute pain in the area when I swallow or touch... the doctor told me to take pain killers, however its the third day of pain and swelling and I am concerned ...anybody ever experienced anything similar???

Thank you

    After FNA of a thyroid nodule I had bruising and tenderness in the neck and needed to take painkillers for several days until the bruising and swelling subsided.

  • Thank you for the reply!! So I shouldn't be concerned, I should wait a couple of more days and see if it goes away...

    It should resolve within a week.
