lumps have anything to do with my overactive thyroid?

User Profile
Hi I had FBC taken and it came back I was hyperthyroid, I'm waiting to see a specialist but I don't get to see them for another 2 months and I am quite concerned about a lump that has just appeared on my neck and I have also just discovered a lump on my collar bone. Are these lumps anything to do with my overactive thyroid?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is difficult to comment on the cause and origin of the lumps that you describe on neck and collar bone without examining them. The lump in the neck, if present in the thyroid gland location, could suggest overactive thyroid nodule. Do not delay in visiting your doctor/endocrinologist for further evaluation and assistance. You might also consider visiting ER or urgent care to get started on treatment at the earliest as indicated by your investigation results and examination findings. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/endocrinologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
