  • I was diagnosed with a cyst on my Thyroid when I was pregnant too. I could feel it when I swallow too. I forget how big it was, maybe 3cm like yours. I took approx. the same dosage synthroid while pregnant. after I has my DS, I had a biopsy in the Doctors office. It was no big deal. You hardly feel the needle at all and they use an ultrasound to find the cyst. You just have to stay still & it was over in seconds. It turned out to be just a cyst for me & they diagnosed me with Hashimoto's (a goiter). I have since stopped the synthroid because I am just borderline. Good luck and it sounds like you have what I have.
