I would really appreciate any advice/experience... I have had a lump in my neck for about 9 or 10 months now... is about marble sized and quite deep (by which I mean you can't see it sticking out). Went to GP this week fully expecting an 'it's nothing, go away' but actually got referred on for blood tests and an ultrasound. I am a little bit worried now. Blood tests will be done on thursday... but I have no idea how long I am going to end up waiting for the u/s. How has it worked for other people and what was your outcome if you don't mind sharing. Trying not to panic. Thanks for any info.

Depending where it is, could it be connected with your thyroid?

I had a hideous lump in my neck for two years, which disappeared literally overnight after my first dose of thyroxine.

Wow! Thanks for the quick response rockinD smile Hmmm, it's a little more than halfway down and perhaps an inch to the left of centre. I should have mentioned... Doc didnt think it was a lymph node (wrong place) and wasn't my actual thyroid but because my dentist has had concerns abt my thyroid before i think thursdays blood tests will be Thyroid related.
Can I ask... was your lump the actual thyroid or just a random lump caused by it? Thanks again.

I have two lumps which sound very similar in the same place, OP. Frightened the life out of me when I noticed then, aged 18. They turned out to be blocked salivary glands (I think... blocked something glands anyway). Still there 20 years later, but have never caused a problem.

Hope all goes well at your u/s appointment.
