Post Do thyroid cysts leak?

Okay, 1 1/2 years of this now, and my neck this last week has fluid looking swelling at the collar bone. I saw my doctor, and she's a bit baffled, ordered blood work which she had faxed and looked at while I was in ER. everything looked normal, with the exception of my FT4 ( 9-24) was 12.2, this down in 3 months from 16, all of course normal and I am not on any meds. TSH is .628 ( .4-5.0)
I have gained about 30 lbs in the past year, noticeably in the breasts& lower stomache area ( above the hips)and of late my neck aches like burning ache and the swelling.
I can see my cyst still when I swallow, it's hard to say if the size has decreased or if my neck is just thicker and covering it more. I had a chest xray done and I am to have another ultra sound next Monday.
Any thoughts out there?

Guess I'll find out soon enough. My doctor called today and said my chest Xray from Monday showed some nodules on the film, I was too shoicked to ask where abouts. She is sending me to a Respirologist(sp?)who is an Internist as well. She is also ordering up a CT for me.
Since my Nuclear Uptake was elevated, and my first Internist said I am at risk of developing Graves, should I do the CT? Is the CT not the one that they inject Iodine into you?
Any comments would be appreciated.
