    I found a lump...

    Ok here goes:

    2 weeks ago I was shaving and found a lump in my throat beneath my adams apple. It was more rounded and larger than my adams apple. I went to the doctor and he sent me for blood tests, he said it may be my thyroid...

    I got the results last week and they were clear, so not my thyroid. The doctor immediately referred me for a scan, today I got my letter to arrange an appointment, and thankfully got a cancellation slot for 2moro!!! Only thing is I have been sent for a:

    DIAGNOSTIC INVESTIGATION...

    Any idea what this is???

    I guess its to investigate what diagnosis they are going to make! :P

    Hope everything goes well. Try not to worry, easier said than done I know x

    Dont worry it will just be various tests so they can come up with a diagnosis and subsequent treatment plan.

    In other words, the dr is not sure what it is...so he is doing tests to see. Im sure you will be fine, good luck

    Probably and infection or just that area inflammed or something. good luck on test anyhow

    It is a hard lump that is quite big in size and it doesn't hurt at all! Odd.

    my aunt had a lump like that in her neck and got it removed although it wasn't cancerous or anything so try not too worry too mmuch although I know that's easy to say sometimes

    I'm not a doctor but it could be a harmless cyst or a collection of gunk within a sebaceous gland or many other things. Please dont be scared just go and get it looked at and hopefully you'll be fine x x

    Can't see the funny side I'm afraid.

    Could just be an insect bite or reaction to a sting etc?

    NOT FUNNY.

    Try not to worry too much (easy to say i know). Tomrrow will just be a appointment with the E.N.T department/consultant to have a look in your throat, possibly a scan to try and establish what it is. And then hopefully you'll know more.

    I hope you get on alright.

    Wow, what a shocking thing to say! Clearly real humour lacks in your house, and you make do with sick stuff....just wow!!

    They used a couple of staples at the time and the wound was about 2 inches but to tell the truth I haven't noticed the scar at all come to think of it so must just have faded to a very fine feathery line.
    Not sure why they removed it since it wasn't cancerous as I know someone else who had a lump and they just tested some cells from it and then when it was clear left it alone.

    Exactly right.

    Jumping the gun a bit to talk about surgery. Not every lump has to be removed

    Just to wish you the best of luck for today.

    Hey guys!

    Went to my appointment. Got lost trying to find the place!!! Damn Finsbury Park.

    Anyway, the scan showed my thyroid to be in perfect working order, there was nothing cancerous from what the person doing the scan could see. The lump was not showing as anything abnormal.

    The ultrasound results will be sent to my doc in 5 working days. Due to bank hol this will be longer!

    So just gotta wait for the full results from doc. Sounds ok for now.
