Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the neck lump that you describe near thyroid gland without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. If worried, you should consider requesting your doctor/healthcare provider to have a thorough evaluation done to look for the exact cause for the lump that you describe. Further treatment options would be suggested based on the evaluation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/healthcare provider and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
