Thyroid front neck: You should have your doctor take a look at what you have on your head. Your thyroid gland is located in the bottom third of your neck, right in between the two muscles that stick out when you turn your head from side-to-side (sternocleidomastoid muslces) and 2-3 inches above the top of your breast bone.See 1 more doctor answer
I have been treated for osteoporosis 4 years ago. Now my hips i-e greater trochanters hurt when I lay on my sides. I also have a small goiter diagnosed as enlarged thyroid. Plz prescribe
Diagnoses needed.: Osteoporosis is not painful unless a fracture is present. Pain in the hips could be arthritis or tendonitis. X-rays and examination by an orthopaedic surgeon or rheumatologist would be helpful. Thyroid blood tests and possibly an ultrasound examination of the thyroid should be obtained. Bone density testing would be useful in determining the need for osteoporosis treatment.See 1 more doctor answer

TSH level was. 85. Ultrasound confirmed I have an enlarged thyroid with a goiter on the right side of thyroid. Have a ton of symptoms, hyperthyroidism?
Thyroid: In most labs the TSH level would be quite low and indicate hyperthyroidism (excess T4) though this should be measured to ensure it is not due to other factors. You should be evaluated for the various causes like Graves, Toxic adenoma, and hyperplasia. Then a best treatment can be offered.See 1 more doctor answer
Hypot taking levothyroxine, have enlarged thyroid with swelling on left side what would cause this also hoarse, tired, joint pain, moody, sometimes nausea?
Unclear symptoms: Many of your symptoms could be from hypothyroidism if your thyroid blood levels are too low. The thyroid swelling should be evaluated by your doctor, with an ultrasound, maybe scan. A goiter can sometimes interfere with inside structures, although it usually does not. It is also possible your symptoms are not related to thyroid.
Cause?: Depends upon whether it's large because of inflammation (thyroiditis), nodules, over or under function. Check w/your doctor.
Multiple effects: A truly non-functioning thyroid with almost no thyroid hormone synthesis will show many symptoms: most commonly dry hair/nails/skin, mental slowing, loss of eyebrows, weight gain, heart slowing, constipation, menstrual/sexual dysfunction, swelling, et al. This definitely requires thyroid replacement. However, the most commonly seen mild hypothyroidism (tsh 4-10) usually has very few effects seen.
Avoid thyroid: Extracts. If your thyroid level is deficient, the only appropriate therapy is BRAND NAME T4 replacement until your levels have been returned to normal. Thyroid extract (prescription) is ground up animal material and should be avoided.See 1 more doctor answer
Enlarged Thyroid: An enlarged thyroid is called a goiter. I'd be interested to know if you have any nodules on your thyroid. You don't say what was abnormal about your thyroid studies and if you are talking about a lab, a biopsy, or a sonogram or scan. If you have low thyroid activity, hypothyroidism, then you need thyroid medication. I encourage you to give more details on the abnormalities.
