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

Hyperthyroid?: Treatment with thyrozol and Propranolol would be appropriate if you have an overactive thyroid. 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

I had a partial thyroidectomy and the radioactive iodine treatment for the other side due to goiter-nodule with small cancer. Synthroid (thyroxine) reduced-why?
For RAI to Work: The overall treatment is a little confusing as cancer is usually surgically removed, but there are a few reasons to lower your Synthroid (thyroxine). It may be held for a while so your left over thyroid tries to work and will suck up the RAI. The other reason is when the thyroid cells die they will release thyroid hormone. This could temp make you hyperthyroid. Eventually your dose will be adjusted again. ...Read more

Some are caused: By iodine deficiency, which is a reason for iodinized table salt...Those lacking seafood in the midwest and near west used to be so afflicted.
