  1. Hello. I believe you are looking at and referring to the cartilage rather than the actual thyroid gland.
    The gland is located here: https://careproper.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/thyroid-gland-location-e1516329190848.jpg It is necessary to feel the thyroid gland rather than look at it. Check if both sides are the same size and if one is harder than the other. Has it increased size. If you have doubts a thyroid blood test and scan will confirm any problem. Thank you.

  2. Hello
    If like that please get an Ultrasound scan done to know if the thyroid gland has swollen up or not

  3. Hi..
    It is not looking like thyroid swelling.
    For further confirmation you should get a clinical examination and ultrasound done..

    Hope this helps..


  4. Palpating is used to locate thyroid. You are pointing more towards cricoid cartilage. That’s where thyroid gland begins.
