You should have your thyroid hormone levels checked, if hyper or hypoactive it can be treated. If the hormone level is normal, you should have a cat scan to determine if the gland is narrowing the breathing pipe or trachea. If so surgery may treat your problem. Finally you should look for other causes of shortness of breath including asthma or obstructive sleep apnea. ...Read more

Probably: Unless the goiter (enlarged thyroid) is very large, it should cause few if any problems. However, something is causing the goiter. In the US, it is usually because the immune system is inappropriately making antibodies that attack a person's own proteins in the thyroid (auto-, or self-directed, immunity). This may cause abnormal thyroid levels in the future, and needs to be checked regularly. ...Read more
Rarely: There are rarely pure genetic causes for goiter, like in patients with pendred syndrome and other even more rare conditions. However, most of the time, goiter is the result of a disease process within the thyroid. Genetics probably plays a role in one's susceptibility to thyroid disease as it's common to see patients with thyroid disease who also have other family members with thyroid disease. ...Read more
