Hello bhargavi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The swelling that your mother is having if it is in center of the neck it can be a swollen thyroid gland or even a cyst in thyroid.If the doctor who is treating her has done thyroid test and started her on medicines for hypothyroid then you need to wait for few weeks so that the medicine starts working and the swelling will settle.If the doctor has not started on medicines for hypothyroid then consult a Physician and get started.
