large mass in thyroid, solid and slightly heterogenous, internal and peripheral vascularity, pain while swallowing, pain in neck and ear

I have a large mass in the left lobe of my thyroid , measuring 3.7cm sagittal, 2.2cm anterior posterior and 2.9cm mediolateral. It occupies most of the left lobe. It is solid and slightly heterogenous and has internal and peripheral vascularity. It is almost completely replacing the left lobe of my thyroid. I am having extreme problems swallowing and have pain radiating up my neck and into my left ear. I have the sensation of being choked or strangled. Is this a mass that should be removed?

hi thomas
welcome to healthcaremagic

on assesment of the scan findings along with the symptoms which you describe such as choking/strangulation symptoms you need to remove it, but before that the functional stage of the goitre which you are suffering from has to be assesed and then if required need to be supressed. ots best to consult an ENT surgeon or an endocrinologist.
