Thyroid enzymes can be elevated for different reasons. The best thing to do is go to the doctor and tell them about your swallowing problems. Sometimes stress will cause this. Thyroid cancer can strike at any age but it usually occurs in people over the age of 30. Calm down, don't worry, and do what your doctor says. I've been a nurse for 30 years and I've never seen thyroid cancer in anyone your age. It can happen but is very rare.
