Thryoid nodule. Pressing on corotid artery and air way. Need info advice
October 1, 2013 at 3:02 PM

 I've noticed this bump on my throat for a little over a year. Didn't really think to much into it.

Early in september, I had a regular check up with my doc. She noticed the bump and sent me off for blood work. It came back normal. She sent me to an endocrin. He did an ultra sound, and it shows a complex cyst. Measures 5.14cm in length  2.63cm in width and 2.44 cm in height. He said it's pressing on my corotid artery and into my air way.

He is doing needle biopsy October 15th. He said he will remove it no matter what the biopsy shows, because it's pressing on artery and air way. He said if it's malignant the entire thing comes out, if not then only part of it.

I also have endometriosis. so I don't know if this all goes hand in hand.

 

I'm a mother to a 3 year old, and this scares the hell out of me! I want to be here with him and for him.

Please if any of you have went through this give me info advice.

How long do you stay in hospital? How long does recovery take? Any and all info please.
