Hi, Bumps on the tongue is usually not a sign of cancer leave alone the thyroid cancer. A thyroid mass needs evaluation by FNAC, Ultrasound of the neck, and thyroid profile. If it is very huge, then a CT neck also is needed. Please get your self examined and investigated. Otherwise a thyroid cancer is on the cancers with better prognosis compared to many other head and neck cancers. Regards
