I have multinodular goiter with more involvement on the right side. Two biggest nodules are 1.5 cm. Could thiscause some difficulty swallowing?
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?
Follow up when u can: I assume the biopsy 3 years ago was benign (negative)? The risk of thyroid cancer is low, with each nodule having an apprx. 5% chance of cancer. Odds are good that u are dealing with a benign process but u should followup as soon as you can get insurance to have this re-evaluated. Look around to see what's available to u. There are clinics that give deep discount for self-pay or free at med school. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It might...: Goiter is simply an enlarged thyroid. A goiter may or may not produce a normal amount of thyroid hormone. A simple lab test can tell if your thyroid levels are normal or not.

Cause??: If a goiter is the result of anti-thyroid antibodies and your thyroid function is normal, there isn't much to be done.
