49 Possible Causes for Neck Mass, Thyroid Ultrasound Abnormal, Vocal Cord Paralysis

  • Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma

    Sixteen years later, the patient presented with left neck mass detected by ultrasound in the area of thyroid bed.[] Thyroid ultrasound (or thyroid scan) to learn about the size, number, appearance and location of any thyroid nodules and abnormal lymph nodes.[] About 30% of patients have vocal cord paralysis, and cervical metastases are palpable on examination in 40% of patients.[]

  • Hurthle Cell Carcinoma

    Dysphagia, dyspnea, voice changes and an apparent mass in the neck are main findings.[] All patients suspected to have thyroid nodules (abnormal growths), either from physical examination or from another radiology study, should have a thyroid ultrasound performed[] Imaging tests, including ultrasound and CT, can help your doctor determine whether an abnormal growth is present in the thyroid.[]

  • Parathyroid Carcinoma

    Parathyroid carcinoma is a very rare endocrine malignancy, which usually presents with features of hypercalcaemia and a neck mass.[] However, neck ultrasound revealed no significantly abnormal thyroid or parathyroid nodules.[] The patient is a 57-year-old woman with long-standing right-sided vocal cord paralysis presented with a progressive 3 2 3 cm mass in the right neck.[]

  • Thyroid Lymphoma

    EVIDENCE SYNTHESIS: Primary thyroid lymphoma should be suspected in patients with a rapidly enlarging neck mass, especially in women with Hashimoto's thyroiditis.[] The patient presented here had complete recovery of vocal cord function following radiation therapy for a large thyroid lymphoma associated with vocal cord paralysis.[] Presenting symptoms included neck mass (88%), dysphagia (45.3%), and hoarseness (37.3%).[]

  • Follicular Thyroid Carcinoma

    There were no cervical lymphadenopathy or neck masses.[] Diagnosis [ edit ] The first step in diagnosing a thyroid neoplasm is a physical exam of the neck area. If any abnormalities exist, a doctor needs to be consulted.[] Rare but worrisome presentations include hoarseness due to vocal cord paralysis and obstruction of the airway or esophagus.[]

  • Thyroid Lump

    Members of your care team at the Neck Mass and Thyroid Nodule Biopsy Clinic will work very closely with your personal doctor.[] In some patients, abnormal thyroid function and structural disease co-exist. For example, some thyroid nodules cause over-activity of the thyroid gland.[] More severe symptoms, such as thyroid pain, difficulty in swallowing, hoarseness or vocal cord paralysis and airway obstruction may be an indication of a possible malignant[]

  • Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma

Chest x-ray revealed no abnormalities.[] Rare but worrisome presentations include hoarseness due to vocal cord paralysis and obstruction of the airway or esophagus.[]

  • Thyroid Cyst with Hemorrhage

    Masses in many head and neck sites are amenable to diagnosis by fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology.[] Thyroid ultrasound.[] The picture on the left shows a larynx with a right true vocal cord paralysis from a laryngeal cancer. The right true vocal cord is shorter than the left.[]

  • Substernal Goiter

    mass.[] Which thyroid nodules to biopsy High risk history* 5 mm Abnormal cervical lymph node All nodules† Microcalcification 1 cm Solid nodule 1 cm Mixed cystic – solid 1.5–2 cm Spongiform[] Six patients (5%) had postoperative hoarseness, 1 had permanent vocal cord paralysis, and 19 (15%) had transient postoperative hypocalcemia.[]

  • Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma

    Herein, we report a case of a 34 year old male who presented with a progressively enlarging neck mass.[] Clinically, anaplastic thyroid carcinoma often presents as a quickly growing and firm lesion in the neck, and it may be associated with vocal cord paralysis, hoarseness, weight[] Symptoms include: Cough Coughing up blood Difficulty swallowing Hoarseness or changing voice Loud breathing Lower neck lump, which often grows quickly Pain Vocal cord paralysis[]
