Can A Goiter Grow Back
Yes: It is not common, but is possible. I don't recommend it myself, but some surgeons perform subtotal thyroidectomies, where they only remove a portion of the gland. This dramatically increases the chances of thyroid regrowth. However, even after a standard thyroidectomy, it very rarely possible for the thyroid to regrow from the minute amount of tissue that may be left behind. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glands grow: If not all of the thyroid was removed, the remnant will likely grow back, especially if the TSH was slightly high or normal (tsh is a stimulus to growth). Surgery usually does not remove every last cell of the thyroid, even if it is called a "total thyroidectomy". See your endocrinologist. ...Read more
Had a shave removal of a mole, which was benign, but it grew back. Can the removal change the cells to cause it to grow back cancerous?
Get is excised: A mole can recur which is probably the case with you right now. But it can also be a melanoma.

Yes: After partial removal, the remaining thyroid will grow. If this thyroid remnant is healthy, it can easily make enough thyroid hormone to keep your blood levels normal, but on exam it may be enlarged.

I was found to be anemic due to the large fibroids .My hair -head, has stopped growing.What could be the cause?After surgery, will it grow back longer?
Maybe but it depends: Your hair can stop growing due to major stress. Typically we think of child birth and hospitalizations but extreme anemia can do this too. Assuming your thyroid is normal and your blood count recovers after your operation, then we would expect your hair to return to normal. But expect several months to go by before you see a full head of hair again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Maybe: The hair loss with low or high thyroid is usually generalized, that is not just receding but all over. If it is due to the thyroid it may take up to 3 mo.
