    for the past few days, i've been feeling this lump in my throat.
    i don't really know how to describe it. i will feel it & sometimes i won't.
    i'm freaking out that it's cancer or something.

    i did smoke for 2 years. i know i'm stupid, but that was my 'rebellion' stage.
    but hey, at least i'm done with that now.

    going to the endo the 23rd. guess we shall see.
    please pray for me, if you don't pray, then just think about me.

    I'll be praying that it is nothing. Maybe just stress related with midterms and everything going on ?

    But I was wondering ??Have you been told you have any sort of thyroid problem like it was a bit swollen previously or your tsh, free t3, or free t4 levels were off ? were you ever tested for the antibodies for thyroid disease ?

    Is it on the inside of your throat? Or on the outside, where you can feel it with your fingers when you touch your neck? If it's inside, could it just be drainage? Or (kind of gross, I know, sorry!) a ball of mucus that's stuck? That happens to me sometimes depending on the weather, and well, we did have that cold front come in a couple days ago. It's been in the chilly 60s and 70s the last couple of days when we're used to it being in the mid 90s..

    Just trying to think of other options :cwds:

    thanks everyone.


    that could be it.
    idk, it feels like it's behind something, haha i can't explain it.
    but i did hack up some mucous last night & i did feel better. but it just won't go away ):
    people keep telling me it's not cancer, but i always fear the worst.

    & something about stress can make it feel that way.
    & i stress/worry a lot. i might need some medicine to calm me down or something.

    It could be hypo/hyper thyroid, the endo always/has always checks mine, even though I'm already dx'd hypo.

    It's almost certainly not cancer, so not to worry. That takes much longer to develop. Here's hoping your apt. goes well. :cwds:
