Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the neck swelling, pain and ear pain and the thyroid status without examining you and going ahead with thorough evaluation. The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/healthcare provider for through evaluation, clarification and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you control the symptoms and confirm/rule out cancerous changes in thyroid. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
