You may have a thyroid nodule.
What are Thyroid Nodules?
A thyroid nodule is an abnormal growth of thyroid cells that form a lump in the thyroid gland.
The two most common types of thyroid nodules are benign or non-cancerous. These are:
- Colloid nodules
- Follicular adenomas

Depending on the type and cause of the nodule, symptoms may include:
- Difficulty swallowing
- Hoarseness or other voice changes
- Pain in the neck
- A swelling in the neck that you can see or feel (goiter)
- Sudden, rapid weight loss
