Find pbm first: Testing can confirmation a suspicion & provide a starting point to gauge treatment. It may also suggest more serious problems that can become more severe if not fully evaluated & where treatment would obscure needed additional tests. Most testing can be available in within a day or two & if started may take weeks to come into balance. Shortcuts just put you at risk.See 1 more doctor answer

See your doctor for regular checkups, including feeling your thyroid and thyroid blood tests, to catch anything early.

There are also lab tests for certain tumors. Radiology tests can tell the appearance ie nodules, inflammation, cysts, enlargement.
Depends: There are two types of thyroid problems: 1.Functional- with high or low hormones, generally treated with medicine and 2.Structural - a thyroid nodule generally worked up with ultrasound and a fine needle aspiration if appropriate. So basically it depends on what type of thyroid problem you have. Good luck!
