There are so many reasons for swallowing difficulty and thyroid swelling is one among the reasons. Parathyroid glands are 4 small glands present in thyroid gland and are very unlikely to cause swallowing problems, unless very big.

I feel you would require further testing to assess your thyroid and parathyroid gland status. Just to reassure, you need be worried as most of the thyroid and parathyroid disease are treatable.
