Hi sir, as your doctor says swelling with pain in side of neck with pain radiating to ears and jaw is because of infection of the lymph node in neck.
Well regarding thyroid, thyroid is present in middle of neck and nodules in thyroid are usually asymptomatic. Its called nodular goitre.
It present s as swelling in front of neck but no do not worry about thyroid.
You can get a blood test to see how your thyroid are function ing.
