    Hashimoto's t3 & t4 is decreased. Further Lymphocytic thyroiditis more common in women of any age...its associated with pt. taking amiodarone, interferone alpha, interleukin2.

    thyroid swelling with an euthroid status is a common finding. why not going for a FNAC. It could be an adenoma

    guessing is a game. Possibility without FNAC are as already posted by others. Solitary Thyroid Cyst.
    Cystadenoma, Adenoma, Prominent nodule of multinodular goitre. REgarding metastasis, lymphadenitis they are rare in that area. So should think only as a last resort.

    this is insufficient data to make a diagnosis , we need information regarding onset growth rate of mass any signs or symptoms of compression . any voice change . consistency of mass . however if we assume that all these above questions are negative and consistency is firm then clinically only a provisional dignosis of a benign solitary nodule thyroid can be made .

    interferons and interluekins are incredibly expensive and are prescribed for specific autoimmune diseases , which a modest history will immediatly reveal . assuming their use is silly to be nice .

    There are many factors behind lumps within the neck. The most frequently seen lumps or swellings are enlarged lymph nodes. These can be due to bacterial or viral infections, cancer (malignancy), or any other rare causes.
