Knot on neck that is sore to the touch

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

Felt the soreness Sunday evening. About 10 years ago I had a very large nodule on the thyroid removed, I haven't noticed any numbness. I am 67 years old.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I don't think so.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
