Just the past 2 months, my son has been complaining about a painful "lump" in the front of his throat about in the middle between his jaw and where the thyroid should be. His GP really has no idea what might be causing the problem. I just picked up 2 sets of xrays he's had done on his neck for neck pain and spasms both done in the past 2 months. At first the doctor thought it must be an xray flaw then I showed him the other set that orthopedic doctor had done last week for neck pain for which he is starting physical therapy for and the spot was on the second set also.

The doctor showed me on both sets there is a small, but very faint, circular outline in the area that is painful. Neither set of xrays were read by a radiologist. I was going to take them to the endo on Thurs to see if she might know what the spot is on both xrays. His body temp is low 97.1 or 97.4. I was told by a medical doctor that is a sign of hypo thyroid even if the blood work for thyroid is normal. I'm not sure if the endo doctor has done any thyroid tests and will find out on Thursday but so far the routine thyroid tests he had done 3 months ago were normal. They were done prior to him getting so sick the past 2 months.

Could this spot and or the pain he is having be related to a thryoid problem? He is also being treated for AI and taking cortef.
