In many cases, thyroid cysts will not result in any symptoms. However, sometimes the cysts become large enough to be noticeable. For example, a large cyst that presses against other parts of the neck might cause difficulty swallowing or breathing or make your voice hoarse, but this is rare. Sometimes, a cyst is large enough to cause a lump in the neck that you can feel or see in the mirror.
