What happens when you get a goiter? Does it go away completely if treated for hormone problems?

In brief: Depends
Depends on type of goiter, thyroid function and treatment.
A treatment that frequently (but not always) causes significant shrinkage is radioactive iodine for an over active thyroid.

In brief: Not necessarily
It depends on the reason for the goiter.
If you are also hypothyroid than thyroid replacement might cause a decrease in goiter size. See a thyroid doctor.
