#46 5 Causes of Thyroid Pain & How to Treat Them

Thyroid pain is never a normal symptom and the presence of this symptom is an indication that something is wrong.

Believe it or not, thyroid pain is not a common symptom even though thyroid disorders are quite common.

Almost all conditions which result in thyroid pain do so because of inflammation in the thyroid gland itself. This inflammation could be from your own immune system, from an infection, or from trauma.

With this in mind, let’s talk about conditions that cause thyroid pain:

#1. Subactue thyroiditis.
– This is the most common cause of thyroid pain among patients and is usually caused by a viral infection.

#2. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
– Rarely, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (which is an autoimmune condition) can cause thyroid pain. But most people with this condition do NOT have thyroid pain.

#3. Lymphadenopathy
– Lymphadenopathy refers to a condition in which your lymph nodes are enlarged and sensitive. While this isn’t exactly thyroid pain, this condition can be confused with thyroid pain because lymph nodes are very close to your thyroid gland.

#4. Thyroid Cancer
– Rarely, thyroid cancer can also cause thyroid pain. Don’t let this freak you out, though, because most thyroid cancers do NOT cause thyroid pain.

#5. Postpartum Thyroiditis
– Lastly, some cases of postpartum thyroiditis can cause thyroid pain as well. This is very uncommon, but it’s worth considering if you recently had a baby and you have thyroid pain.
