Hi all, I have been diagnosed with a lump on the side of my thyroid glad and I have had a biopsy that said it was a benign lump. Since then I have had several episodes when my neck swells and is very painful.
For longer than 3 months I have had a painful hard swelling on the right of my neck where the thyroid glad is the lymph glad on the same side is also swollen and painful and I have had constant pain in the right side of my neck. Dispite being on Morphine patches (for another condition) I am having to take extra pain killers which offer a little comfort.
I hate going to my Gps as they make you feel like a time waster so I'm not sure where to do. Any advice welcome.
