I have multiple nodules like around 20 and a large goiter in my thyroid. Last biopsy was three years ago. Unable to get follow up due to no insurace?

Cause??: If a goiter is the result of anti-thyroid antibodies and your thyroid function is normal, there isn't much to be done. It will eventually go down on its own as long as thryoid function is kept normal. If from over/under active thyroid, medication may help.
