Thyromegaly: Her age makes it tough to proceed to any surgery. An imaging study might be in order but it depends on just how "well" or otherwise she is. I am making house calls to some older patients and most are appropriately reluctant for any testing or surgery.

Goiter: You need to discuss the possible need for removal of the colloid nodule/nodular goiter with your doctor and a surgical specialist. Hope all goes well.
