Brief Answer:
Examination of the neck, Thyroid function tests

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome
I have gone through your query and do understand your concern.
I would like to get few more information like
Is there any history or presently you have cold?
Tonsillitis?
Is there any swelling in and around neck?

Thyroid enlargement is other possibility that need to be ruled out. So I would have asked you to see general surgeon for detailed examination of the neck, on examination if they require may ask for FNAC of the thyroid.
Other tests would be Thyroid function tests which includes TSH, T3 and T4.

Hope this information helps, I'll be glad to address your further queries.
Take care.
