Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

An ultrasound of the neck region should be done along with an ENT consultation to look for any thyroid mass, vocal cord paralysis or abnormal growth. A midline lump can be due to a thyroglossal cyst and a lateral one could be a branchial cyst. Based on the clinical findings Thyroid function tests and blood counts or a biopsy may be advised if the need be.

wishing you best of health
