Exclamation large neck mass

im a 20 year old female about a week and a half ago i noticed a lump on ny neck and my doctor had me go for a sono then a catscan it measures 4.7cm x 2.7cm i am now awaiting my apointment for a FNA biopsy abd am confused how i never noticed something this large the catscan shows its on my right thyroid gland but blood test for thyroid disorders came back normal and also normal white blood cell came back normal the mass is solid and not cystic i have no other symtoms besides in the morning it feels like theres kinda like a hair ball in my throat until i eat ... my question is does any one maybe know what this could be or has any 1 had a similar experience and does this sound likr it would be malignant or can this still be benign even though its so large any info/stories/questions are welcome thanks again

Re: large neck mass

you don't have throat cancer, you probably have nodules on your thyroid.
you can have nodules without having any abnormalities on a blood test
don't worry.....

Re: large neck mass

it could be one large nodule
the next step is the FNA, which you're getting....that will tell you more.
