Lump on thyroid and calcium deposits in lungs...
I had the flu two months ago and developed a lump on the side of my neck.
I went to an ENT and he did a FNA. While he was out of down, his receptionist called to say that the results were clear. When the dr. came back from his vacation I went to see him and he wants the lump out right away. It does push on my throat, my throat is sore constantly.
But if the results are clear, is it anything to be concerned about? It is about the size of a ping pong ball and you can see it. It is hard and immobile.
He said that I also have calcifications in my lungs but that a lot of people have that and not to worry. Well, hummm, I am a little worried about that.
I have been quite short of breath, breathing hurts my right lung and my lungs
feel like they are burning all of the time. He told me to see an internist about that.
Is all of this related to pending thyroid problems? My thryroid blood test was negative. I'm getting a CT scan tomorrow. Is there some kind of 'rule' as to why I need to have this out? Is it because of the size? thanks K
