Our expert says:
M, the swelling is probably due to inflammation of the thyroid (thyroiditis), but your doctor just wants to make sure that it isn’t due to something else like a cyst. The blood work should also have included thyroid antibodies and if it was normal, you don’t have to worry too much. Let me know if you have more questions (post them as a new question to ensure that I get them). Good luck.
