So during my annual physical 2 weeks ago my PCP doctor detected swollen glands in my throat and sent me to an ENT specialist. The ENT specialist examined me this morning and detected a "firm nodule" on my thyroid. He is sending me for an ultrasound exam in New Haven, and I will also likely be biopsied via an injection into the thyroid.
I know some of you have thyroid issues. What should I expect? Does the injection in the throat suck? What are the possible scenarios here?
By the way, my sister has had lifelong issues with her thyroid gland and I will have to speak with her as well on this.
