About 3 years ago i had a partial thyroidectomy, i had a visible lump on my neck. after the op i was told i had hashimotos, ive been on eltroxin (1mg per day ) and go for regular blood tests to monitor thyroid function. Over the last month i,ve noticed a lump on my neck again, would it be possible for it to be another growth on the remaining part of my thyroid? im contantly tired and can never get warm yet i sweat excessively under my arms, feet and hands.
please advise.
many thanks.

Dear Sarah J
Yes it is quite possible - rather let your doctor have a look and send you for sonar or scan if needed.
