Depends: First - do you need the surgery? Second - is the surgeon trained to do a minimally invasive approach? Recovery from that is usually just a few hours vs overnight in the hospital for more conventional procedures. Make sure this is an experienced thyroid surgeon who knows his/her way around the neck.

Usually not: Hi. Usually once you have a goiter, it's there to stay. However, if the goiter is due to Graves' disease and you get treated with radioactive iodine, that'll using shrink the goiter.

Whoa: If you have a goiter, you need to get with your physician and find out why. Dequervain's will self-cure. If you have graves' or hashimoto's, your life depends on compliance with an evidence-based scientific regimen.

Depends: Footers come when your thyroid is working too hard. If your diet is lacking iodine you can get a goiter. If your body makes antibodies against your own thyroid (like being allergic to yourself) you can get a goiter to. It is a big like knot in the center of your neck and should not be painful. Usually the medication needed is thyroid supplementation
