Hi, welcome and thanks for writing in.
There is no such condition like hole in esophagus. It is just your feeling. Patient having esophageal perforation land up with mediastinitis and immediate ICU admission. So you are absolutely fine in this manner.
I will advise please consult board certified surgeon for clinical examination and one investigation Barium swallow. It is the investigation if choice for any esophageal dismotility problems. It is simple and non expensive. It will diagnose any pathology in esophagus.
USG finding if thyroid are incidental only. No need to worry about that.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have further concern, please let me know.
