Always another lump there to pester me... Now my thyroid.
« on: February 20, 2014, 02:27:28 AM »
The good news is, when I last posted it was about a week of absolute terror over HUGE lymph nodes in my neck. I got a biopsy - no cancer was found. What a HUGE relief that was. I felt like I had a whole new lease on life!

Last night however, I found a small, slightly hard, pea sized lump over my thyroid. But this time, I don't want to jump to it being thyroid cancer. I read that the thyroid can develop lumps all the time. In fact this happened to my mom and it was cysts. However, I do know a girl who had thyroid cancer and she's a little younger than me (I'm 23.)

How likely can it be? I'm a 23 year old woman... I do feel really tired lately and sometimes have trouble breathing, but my anxiety has been... not too great since I've been tapering off my medication (Effexor).

What do you guys think?

Its squishy but firm, very small, and painful to the touch. Right over my right collarbone.
