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 more

Goiter: It may that colloid has increased. If tft's are normal there is no indication for the use of synthroid. However given the size you should have a biopsy. If it is cystic this may in fact decrease it in size as well. ...Read more

There are times when surgery is a benefit, best to take family/friend with you to surgery consult. In many cases medical therapy and observation is all that is needed. ...Read more

Docs can you explain what is a goiter, its symptoms and treatment?

Docs can you explain what is a goiter, its symptoms and treatment?

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 more

I got thyroid goiter nodules on my right side and the size  is 1.2x 3.2mmand now this over 2 year so please advice me for the further treatment?

Goiter: You may need to have this checked again soon by your doctor. You probably should have blood test, including a TSH, Free T4, and Free T3, as well as have your doctor order another ultrasound of your thyroid, to see if the nodules are bigger or mores suspicious, or to see if you now have nodules on the left side as well. ...Read more

What kind of treatment can I get for a goiter when I am allergic to iodine and do not want surgery?

What kind of treatment can I get for a goiter when I am allergic to iodine and do not want surgery?

Goiter: Work with your team, your doc. If you have graves disease and radioactive iodine was recommended, there are several additional medications with benefit. Initial therapy and subsequent result is important for you and your doc to determine subsequent treatments. Don't avoid all care over your iodine and surgery limits. ...Read more

I have multinodular goiter. I suffer discomfort and pressure in the neck continuously. Is there any treatment or have to resort to surgery?

Choices: Your physician will be able to discuss with you whether you want radioactive iodine, levothyroxine suppression, or surgery. Reasonable people will make different choices. In your position, i'd get a good surgeon, but you must exercise autonomy after learning of all your options. Good luck. ...Read more
