i can't tell exactly from the picture nor am i a health professional but i have a goiter (enlarged thyroid) & some other things & my neck kinda looks like that (it was rlly noticable at a higher weight though- the bottom portion of my neck just gets this buldge) i have a pic of me when i was like 13 at a higher weight & you could rlly see it (i'll update if i find it so you can see) 

 

thyroid imbalances are actually extremely common but it could be possible yours is completely healthy 

 

 

hyper/hypothyroidism could only be diagnosed through a blood or needle test (& usually a series of tests over time so they can see how/if your hormone levels fluctuate)

You really need to see Dr for this. Nobody here can diagnose you. I have multi glandular goiter. My Dr told it's not like on seinfeld where you have a neck the size of a foot ball. Other Drs never notice. But with a physical exam some of my nodes are noticeable others are deep within. My thyroid on blood work is normal so I dont need meds.

If you have a goiter you need an ultrasound and blood work. I encourage you to see a dr.

I noticed mine a little more when I was over weight too which is the only reason I booked an appt. Now that im a normal bmi I don't notice it. In fact nobody in irl could evee tell. But I think we are all more aware of our own bodies.
