Goiter =throat pain: Yes! a goiter (enlarged thyroid gland @ base of neck) can cause 'something in throat' sensation as well as difficulty swallowing. A simple ultrasound test can be done to tell for sure but you need an examination by your physician.

No : Goiter can be caused by a few different things. However, levothyroxine is not one of them.
