Yesterday I happened to be visiting with Ben's neurologist from Dartmouth who (it's a long story) ended up diagnosing me with a Thyroid Nodule. It's a lump/bump/hump.
(whatever your preference)
I was symptomatic, just didn't put two and two together. (Sensitivity in the neck -- discomfort with sheets touching my neck at night, shirts and necklaces, Difficulty swallowing, or a choking feeling, persistent or chronic cough not due to allergies or illness) My dad was diagnosed last year with Thyroid cancer. That part makes me a little anxious. I also wonder if I predisposed myself to this with all the x-rays and scans that I have been exposed to when Ben was sick.
I'm talking hundreds.
My thyroid area was never protected. I'm off to see the doctor tomorrow. She will probably refer me to an endocronologist.
Just another "bump" in the road, right?
