Hashimoto's: Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder in which your bodies immune system attacks your thyroid. The thyroid usually shrinks over time in this disease. I would be surprised if thyroid nodules also disappear with this disease. If they grow they should be evaluated at some point.
