Is A Thyroid Nodule And A Goiter The Same Thing
What is the difference between thyroid nodules (thyroid normal size with several nodules on left an right side) and goiter?
Does a single solid thyroid nodule grow rapidly if it is benign? The nodule is not a goiter. Tsh levels are normal.
Can having a goiter and thyroid nodules make you feel unwell. .im so exhausted, my blood tests are not showing I have an under or over active thyroid?
Unlikely: Nodules of the thyroid usually produce no symptoms unless they are very large and pushing on your breathing or swallowing tube. If thyroid blood tests are normal, it means that your tiredness is related to something else. Other common causes are anemia, depression, diabetes, lack of exercise. You should see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Multinodular goiter: Hi. Your hyper-functioning nodule is producing thyroid hormone without pituitary regulation. Since you have multiple nodules, chances are they're all overproducing thyroid hormone (aka "hot" nodules). Your radio-iodine scan will tell. Any "cold" nodule of certain size will need to be evaluated to make sure it's not cancer (you may not have any cold nodules). Treatment with 131-Iodine is easy. ...Read more

MNG + cyst: Hello ~ this is a nodule in MNG (multi-nodular goitre). Previously thought to have no risk of Ca and DOMINANT nodule to have 1% risk and solitary nodule 10% risk. Retrospective studies now show up to 13.7% risk of cancer overall in MNG. Thats high. I would see a surgeon to discuss if this warrants thyroidectomy. thanks ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a multi nodular goiter with 3 benign nodules. 2 4cm nodules on left & 1 2.5cm on right. Goiter pushed trachea to the right. Md rec thyroidectomy. Goiter isn't bothering me. What happens if i don't remove it?
Risks vs benefits: Masses this big will not shrink in time. You hope they will stay the same but they could also grow in the future. They are already causing trachea deviation. In cases like this i usually recommend surgery but you need to be comfortable with your decision. At the very least, follow these masses closely. Good luck. ...Read more
