Hi Robert, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your History Suggest it to be a Thyroid Swelling. You need to get yourself examined by a General Surgeon, so that he can examine you and Suggest, few Blood and Urine tests and Ultrasound of Neck if necessary to confirm it.
Kindly do not delay, visit a Surgeon at the earliest.

Hope i have answered your Query, I Will be available for your Follow up Queries.

Wish you Good Health.

hi robert,
welcome to health care magic,
the swelling is definitely arising from the thyroid gland but the exact pathology identity needs examination and an ultrasound along with thyroid function you should consult a surgeon at the earliest.
