Hi, dear.
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. Your high calcium level may be due to drug side effects or may be due to hyperparathyroidism. So you should investigate yout PTH once. Then you should take treatment accordingly. Don't worry its not a serious condition. Just be relaxed.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.

We are doing a 24 hr collection now but what does that mean? Everything online says this is a serious matter but my pedestrian says its not a matter to be concerned about.

I m 37yrs old. one year and a half thyroid cancer survivor. my cancer was papillary and had spread into some of my lymphnodes. i have no thyroid and no parathyroid function. I have woken up with my left neck swollen under my jaw, it was huge and extremely painful. when i eat it gets even bigger and hurts worse. it took a little over a week to go away, that was a few weeks ago. Now, yesterday morning I woke up and my right side is swollen and when i eat it hurst worse and gets bigger exactly how the left side did. Could this be my tonsil or something else? I do have my tonsils?? my throat does not look redder than normal or swollen. What could it be? Do i need to see a doctor? if so, will my general practioner be ok? I get scared after my cancer when anything weird happens... I did have my salivary ducts blocked and swollen after the Radioactive iodine treatment a year and a half ago and the swelling is not in the same area. That made me look like a chipmunk, this is my neck directly under my jaw line and it s huge especially after I eat!! thank you so much, kym
