Those with thyroid problems, or know about them, or anyone who knows about anatomy. EDIT w/ MY pics
They said last time they checked, it was 6.30, and they checked about 6 months ago. I told them I have been having symptoms, especially hair loss, and I have a nodule on my neck. The Doctor told me that wasn't where my thyroid gland was. He said it was lower, but I have looked at pictures, and the gland goes up to the center of the neck, and it's where/under where a typical adams apple is. The nodule is right at where the top of the gland would be, but he told me it's not on my thyroid. I told him my hair was coming out a lot again, and he said it had to be from something else because SIX months ago my tests were normal...Umm..Also my throat has swollen up a few times and felt uncomfortable and made me feel like it was closing and pushed, now that this lump has appeared on my neck. I am pretty sure it's thyroid related. I don't know why he dismissed EVERYTHING I said. I also asked about a medicine switch to the porcine thyroid meds, and immediate dismissal of that as well. I thought it was a serious matter if a lump forms, but I guess it's just whatever to them. I literally walked out of there with nothing. I am kind of frustrated. Advice? Opinions on everything? Also I could add a picture of my neck if anyone wants to see where the lump is.
EDIT: Here is where it is on my neck. Red is the lump. Yellow feels like it is pushed out .
