I have thyroid nodule category 4A for two years and have no pain for two years. During the examination, the left side is larger than the right side. Recently, the right neck is uncomfortable. Pressing is a little painful. It's going to be Chinese new year recently. Maybe I'll see it after Chinese New Year. What should I do
Under normal circumstances, thyroid nodules will not cause pain. Category 4A nodules also tend to be benign, so the reexamination before and after the year is the same. This time requirement is not so strict. If the pain is severe, go to the hospital in time to see if there are other reasons, such as lymph node problems.
Thyroid nodules in this case need to be treated according to the size of the nodule. If the nodule changes quickly, minimally invasive treatment is usually considered. If the nodule changes slowly, conservative treatment can be carried out first. In this case, go to the thyroid Department of the hospital for face-to-face examination and symptomatic treatment.
If you have pain on your left and right sides, pay attention to physical examination and observe the changes of your condition. Thyroid nodules are caused by too much or too little iodine intake. Most thyroid nodules have no obvious clinical symptoms. If thyroid nodules have obvious clinical symptoms, they should be removed surgically
