    Enlarged Thyroid & symptons
    happyhoy posted:
    I have a very large thyroid. Over 7cm both sides. Have multiple nodules on both lobes with a dominant solid "growth" on the left. It has grown quite a bit since Jan. had stayed steady for three years prior. Have been DX with Haahimotos. My question/concern is... In the last couple weeks it isharder and harder for ne to swallow, j have pressure in my neck and my throat is sore/hoarse almost every day. Is it possible that things are changing that quickly on my thyroid? It is being removed in two weeks but, the pressure and difficulty to swallow seems to get worse every day. Should I just relax, is it "in my head" or should I contact my surgeon?
