Having been referred to ENT as I have a lump on the right hand side of my thyroid causing difficulty in swallowing, changing my voice range, feeling compression on wind pipe when laying in certain positions at night etc
I quickly received an appointment and subsequent Ultrasound Scan, during the scan a fine needle biopsy was performed, but not on the lump I knew I had, instead on a lump in the left side of my thyroid...after waiting 4 weeks I finally got the results but only to tell me the lump on the left was not cancerous and there would be no follow up action required...there seems to be a breakdown of communication somewhere as I still have a lump on my right hand side of my thyroid causing difficulties as listed above...but no further action... I do not think so and will be taking this further
