I just woke up and the back of my throat is all swollen. I'm calling the Dr. and hopefully they will take it out.

Are you sure you don't have a cold or other malady brewing?
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

I didn't have a gointer or Hashamoto's but did have a suspicious thyroid due to X-ray therapy for acne in the 1950's. It was removed in 1978 and no problems. My doctor just checks it periodically and adjusts as necessary.

That's a really good question to ask your doctor in person.

I'm not a doctor and don't play one on TV, but can tell you that anything that's swelling on/near your throat is something you need to get checked out by an actual doctor, in person.

There's very little "extra room" inside your neck.
