The vogue thing to do on the internet is to insist that you see a doctor. Too bad TK doesn't seem to post in here anymore or maybe he could give you a "decent" differential diagnosis. I'm not saying it's actually your thyroid, however the majority of thyroid nodules are benign and while a painful lump on a thyroid sounds bad, but there are benign painful thyroid lumps. You should probably get it looked at.
