The purpose of this article is to report a case of a 38-year-old man with complaint of dry cough. The physician noticed a neck swelling that was never investigated because it did not cause any serious trouble to the patient. Diagnostic workup revealed primary follicular thyroid carcinoma with cannonball secondaries in lungs, contrary to female and elderly age group preponderance.
