I am currently under treatment for my hyperthyroid condition. I can feel my body getting weaker and my heart beating faster. Is this a side effect of the treatment or a symptom of my condition?
Is it true that thyroid problems are related to depression? How do I know if the mood fluctuations I experience is due to thyroid problems?
My wife is 35 years old and has been experiencing lethargy for a while now. Yesterday, she felt a lump growing on her neck, and complained that it has been causing her pain when she swallows food. Is this an endocrine problem?
How long does a goiter take to go away? I have had it for two months now and it doesn’t seem to be getting better.
I perspire a lot. I read online that this condition of mine could be due to certain diseases, including hormonal problems. Is it true? How do I differentiate my sweating from ordinary sweating?
I have a lump on the right side of my neck. I think it has been there since a year ago, but it was small then. Now it’s grown bigger. I don’t know if this is a halo effect or medically related, but I think since I’ve had this lump, my breath is shorter. I didn’t lose weight or my appetite. Can I have your opinion on this, Doctor?
My weight has been increasing steadily for the past 5 years. Everytime i try to exercise, I feel lethargic. I sleep a lot but it doesn’t help with the lethargy. I went for an ultrasound and was told I have a parathyroid tumour. So far the blood results show it is non-cancerous. Should I go for surgery to remove it since it’s non-cancerous?
After tonsillitis surgery, there is a lump growing under my husband’s chin. He says it is hard for him to swallow food. His sleep pattern is also affected. He can be awake all night, and feel very sleepy and weak during the day. Could you give us your opinion on this, Doctor?
There is a small lump on my upper neck, right below my skull. It feels hard and hurts when it is pressed. I can sometimes feel a liquid emerging from it. I am very sure it is not a pimple or boil though. What condition is this?
I once had a surgery to remove a lump behind my ear. My biopsy shows it is not dangerous. However, these past 3 weeks, I have been feeling a throbbing pain in that area, together with severe migraine. I lose my appetite and feel anxious all the time. I cannot sleep and I urinate a lot because I feel like I’m always thirsty and I drink a lot of water. I read an online article that mentioned these symptoms may be due to endocrine problems (especially since I had a lump once). What should I do to fix this? What examination should I undergo now?
