Thyroid complex cyst found 3cm help me!!!!

Hi everyone.. I posted a few days ago about the mystery lump on my neck. I did an ultrasound and doc says its 3cm and complex. He wants me to hve a biopsy soon. I am terrified!!! What if its anaplastic cancer?? I discovered the lump suddenly is why I'm scared of that. Otherwise I am a healthy fit 27 year old lady. Please gve me some words of hope. I haven't been able to eat or sleep much from worrying about this.

Re: Thyroid complex cyst found 3cm help me!!!!

Take a deep breath. All is probably fine, but just go through the motions and make sure. I had the ultrasound, biopsy, surgery, and was told the entire way was cancer free, but the pathology came back post op and I did have cancer, but it was all removed. It seems tedious at times, but find a good surgeon and follow through. I had multiple nodules two of which were 6.0+ cms. My neck was one huge goiter. Good luck and take a deep breath. Many many people have cysts and it is fine.

Re: Thyroid complex cyst found 3cm help me!!!!

hi yes i agree we are in the same situation unfortunetly i have had a sore throat since febuary last year but docters took no notice until i found a lump. I also had a pain in my neck when stressed or shouting but this isnt as severe as it was (i used to smoke roll ups and quit think this helped) I do have problems swallowing food and my neck does ache. Hope all goes well for you.

Re: Thyroid complex cyst found 3cm help me!!!!

I have had the best news today i was told it is a thyroglossal cyst which is not sinister and possibly has always been there since birth! It is 4mm which was shocking as it looks 3cm on my neck! I shouldnt need further action and will know more when i see my ENT docter. My thyroid looks swollen on my neck although he says it looks within size range, my mum had a overactive thyroid so i will look more into this because i have alot of symptons.
I now hope to hear good news from you now try not to worry ive worried too long and have made myself ill with chest pains! Good luck X
