This is my first post here, I have a query regarding my throat and neck.
I am a 39yo male.
I have a bulge/lump that appears when I cough on the right lower side of my neck.
It is about half the size of a golf ball, and sticks out a couple of centimetres,
I have had a CT scan and Ultrasound of this area about a year ago, and small nodules were found on the right side of my thyroid, although nothing else was noted.
A repeat ultrasound and CT (this year) have shown that they have grown slightly, but are still very small.
The hernia-like lump that appears has gradually grown slightly bigger. It is visually noticeable when I cough, and there is also mild but noticeable swelling on the right side of my neck.
I have had repeated infections , mild pain for several years, and I have smoked for 20 years.
Also, about 15 years ago, doing something stupid, I breathed in some frozen Nitrious Oxide gas and burned my throat with it.
I am wondering what this bulging lump is, and does this require surgery, is it urgent, does it require a biopsy?
