Worried

Hi I’ve been feeling very unwell for months. I had an ultrasound on my thyroid a couple of weeks ago as I have a large lump in my neck. I saw the doctor on Monday and I have to have a biopsy. I’m really scared and don’t know how I’m going to wait up to 2 weeks for an appointment! 
thanks for listening x

  • Sorry you have found yourself here.

    I don’t have great knowledge but something like 90% of lumps are non cancerous so try not too worry. You will have been sent for a FNA which is when they use a very small needle to extract some cells from your thyroid. It’s is uncomfortable but over very quickly, in my case they took a sample from a lymph node as well. Unfortunately you then have to wait for the results, in my case it was 3 weeks but every hospital is different. 

    I remember being in your situation and it is very difficult to think of anything else, but do remember most lumps are non cancerous. 

  • Heya

    How's it going? Have you had your appointment yet?
