I have had surgery over 10 years ago for a partial thyroidectomy (right side) due to follicular adenoma.
Recently I have lost almost 20 pounds in weight and suffer night sweats. I have a swelling on the left hand side of the neck. I have had a CT scan which shows up nodes in the chest too. These nodes are around 1cm. White cell count is high. Nodes below my jaw on both sides are enlarged.
The doctor has told me that the nodes are nothing to worry about as every one's glands come up from time to time. Trouble is, mine do not go back down. Should I be seeking a second opinion
