I have a 3 cm lump on my sternal notch. My PCP ordered a I123 uptake an scan. This lump is below my thyoid. The scan came back negative. I was a nuclear med tech, and I know the lump is not on my thyroid. What could it be? I have been having shooting pains throught my body, mostly long bones and head for abour 4 months. They go as quickly as they come. Should I get a second opinion?
