Thyroid levels?: An enlarged thyroid on exam is subjective. The us is better at asessing thyroid size and volume and to rule out other problems which sometimes can be seen on thyroid glands. If your thyroid hormone levels are normal, most likely your symptoms are not related to a thyroid problem. The normal us is reassuring.
