Lump in my neck

Chat - - Health -

There’s a lump in my neck which my doc­tor says is a goitre. I’m wait­ing for more tests, but is it se­ri­ous? Sylvie, Ton­bridge

goitre is an en­larged thy­roid gland. It can hap­pen for no rea­son and shrink again, but tests will rule out causes such as an in­flamed, un­der­ac­tive or over­ac­tive gland, which would need treat­ment. Cancer is a rare cause.
