  • I had the same thing. Turned out to be a thyroid glossal cyst, next to my thyroid gland. Two of them actually. Had to have them removed, one was as big as a plum the other quarter sized. Both benign (sp) noncancerious I mean. They started to devlope when I was 18. They grew slowly, unnoticable, until 25yrs old or so. Just live with them until I was 36. They started to bother me,then hurt when I swallowed, Went to an ENT she did a CAT scan, had surgery the following week. Out-patient, so in and out in one day. The scare was kinda cool, told people who asked,"was in a fight and they should see the other person". Hope this helps but go see an ENT
