So...2 yrs ago I had a MRI on my neck and a small nodule was found on my thyroid..I was told to get a sonogram many times, but seems something is always wrong with this 57 year old body and it wasn't bothering me. I I ignored the pcp. Then the throat started getting hoarse..felt some restriction and feels like.something is stuck in throat ,like a pill is stuck. .so I go for a dental procedure and dentist says my palate is an odd color and did I have a thyroid issue. I finally get the sonogram which showed a 2.2 cm multinodular goiter on the right side of thryroid. Many thyroid issues in family ..daughter had hers removed due to pre cancer cells..my mom..brother..many on moms side have thryroid problems. go to Endo...she takes blood all my levels are fine except low vitamin D. She sends me for a.fine needle biopsy that was awful. Goiter has grown to.2.9 cm but all biopsies benign...so now it has woke me up at night to.catch my breath and constant restricted feeling along with the feeling still of something stuck in throat and now when I talk at times I drool alittle from the right side in the corner of my mouth. Not anything anyone would notice but thinking about it...it has been happening for months...and I get hoarse whike talking fornmorenthan 5 minutes. . Although so happy no malignant cells...and no bad TDH levels. What happens now? When they called today the nurse said she would see me in July. Is it.going to just go away? Is it going to suffocate me? Lesson learned on waiting for sonogram but pcp said goiter would need removed. I google and google and get no answer because other than this goiter nothing seems wrong....anyone have this issue? .please and thank you
