Question: A 45 year old female is referred to you for a "painful thyroid mass". Palpation of the central neck reveals some diffuse nodularity but you are surprised by how uncomfortable the exam is for the patient. She mentions that she has not felt "normal" for several weeks and that it all started with a sinus infection. What is the diagnosis? [Answer will be posted with next week's new question]
Answer to last week's question, "Crick In The Neck" (May 23, 2016):
