Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These could be due to associated neoplasm of men syndrome. Consult endocrinologist to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
