Hi geraldine1967,

Thanks for getting in touch. From reading your previous posts it’s understandable to be worried about any new symptoms.

There doesn’t appear to be any information suggesting a link between the thyroid and foot lumps. Its important to rule out other causes.

We’d encourage you to get back in touch with your GP. In most cases they will be able to tell you what’s causing the lump or refer you for further tests if they are unsure.

I hope this helps. Please don’t hesitate to get back in touch if you have any further questions. Best wishes, Kelly (Macmillan Information Nurse Specialist)
