Those who have had a thyroid node...

could you please let me know if you could feel it with your fingers and if so how it felt?

Could a squishy, soft 3cm lump at the very bottom of the front of the neck where it meets the top of the central chest bone be a thyroid nodule or cyst? Could it cause discomfort when swallowing?

Sorry, I meant nodule not node in my title.

Yes, I have one of these and it is palpable. It doesn't cause me any trouble swallowing though. And I would say it is firm and mobile rather than squishy.

What does your GP think?

Thank you. smile I'm trying to work out if it's worth bothering my GP with, it's really squishy like a bag of free fluid so probably just a cyst. I'll mention it next time I do to the docs.
