A persistent cough is one of the symptoms of thyroid cancer.

These are the most common symptoms of thyroid cancer:

  • A lump or swelling over your thyroid or elsewhere in your neck 

  • A persistent cough, without symptoms of a cold

  • Hoarseness or other changes in your voice that are persistent

  • Neck pain, especially in the front of your neck that can radiate up to your ears

  • Swollen lymph nodes

  • Swollen neck

  • Trouble breathing that feels like you are breathing through a straw

  • Trouble swallowing

Less serious medical problems also can cause these symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms, you should contact your doctor promptly.
