Hello,

The densities with vascularity around the thyroid gland needs to be investigated. You should get a fine needle aspiration and microscopic examination of the cells from the density in thyroid and rule out cancerous changes.

The rib cage pain can be a different entity. It can be due to muscular pain or bony pain in the superficial structures. It can also be due to an underlying inflamed gall bladder or a inflamed liver tissue. You should get a liver function test done and a ultrasound study of abdomen to make sure that there is nothing serious.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Meera Rajeev, Anesthesiologist
