Hyperthyroid?: Treatment with thyrozol and Propranolol would be appropriate if you have an overactive thyroid. It will not help if your thyroid level is normal and you simply have an enlarged thyroid. In your age group, the most common cause for hyperthyroidism is graves disease. A goiter is common with this disorder and can resolve with treatment, if you go into remission. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Many possibilities: An enlarged thyroid (goiter) has many causes and possible treatments. Is it causing hyper/hypothyroidism (i.e. Graves disease, toxic goiter, hashimotos)? Check tsh, ft4. Maybe anti-tpo. Is the goiter nodular or smooth? This may require an ultrasound, with biopsy of any suspicious nodules. Is it really big and impair your swallowing/breathing? Then maybe surgery. Check with your doctor. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
