I have 25*14 mm sized cold multi nodular goiter which is benign as per investigation reports. Should i go for surgical treatment?

Nodular goiter: I would not worry about a nodular goiter if the thyroid blood levels are OK and you are not really troubled by slightly enlarged thyroid nodules. That said, if your doctor recommends thyroid surgery you will be referred to a thyroid surgeon who will tell you what needs to be done or what is not necessary to be done, at least for now. ...Read more

It will not help if your thyroid level is normal and you simply have an enlarged thyroid. In your age group, the most common cause for hyperthyroidism is graves disease. A goiter is common with this disorder and can resolve with treatment, if you go into remission. ...Read more
