A 30-year-old member asked:

What causes an enlarged thyroid and how is it taken care of?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Richard Orr
Surgical Oncology 44 years experience
Multiple causes: Most are benign goiters, but sometimes thyroid enlargement is caused by cancer or hyperthyroidism. Treatment varies related to symptoms and cause. Most goiters do not need any treatment, but you need to see a doc to have it checked. You don't want to miss a curable cancer or suffer unnneccessarily if you have hyperthyroidism.
