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

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 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
