In brief: Usually not

How do you know you have thyroid enlargement? Have you discussed it with your doctor? Thyroid deficiency, which can occur with thyroid enlargement, can lead to changes in voice pitch.
The most common cause of changes in pitch is puberty.

In brief: Voice

The frequency of the vibration of the vocal cords is the driver. If the factors you mention result in lower frequency the sound will deepen.
