Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.On reviewing your picture attached with the query, it looks like an acute inflammation of the thyroid gland or even a lymphadenitis.The condition needs to be ruled out by an examination. Consult an ENT doctor for an examination and specific anti-inflammatory medicines. Antibiotics may be needed.Hope this helped.Regards
