nodule hurts when I swallow

Hi, everyone. I'm not here often, but the people here have been helpful to me in the past, and I'm grateful.

I have Graves disease, currently in remission because of methimazole, though I have been feeling slightly hyper lately, and I'm waiting on a lab slip to get tested. I have some nodules, which were biopsied about five years ago, and I have annual ultrasounds that show they're not growing. My problem right now is that the biggest one hurts whenever I swallow. It's not a big deal, but it's starting to get to me. Does anyone know why they should suddenly start hurting like that, and what I can do to stop the pain?

Re: nodule hurts when I swallow

How big is your nodule? Is it cystic (fluid filled)?

I currently have a huge cyst, 5cm that recently 'appeared'. Radiologist, Pathologist and endo both agrees it likely hemorrhaged and swelled up, hence the sudden onset of symptoms.
