Have a cyst and nodules, endo sure I have graves, scan on Thursday, then an eye doc. Wants to remove thyroid. Should I let him? What is cyst?

Graves disease. is an autoimmune disease characterized by an overactive thyroid and bulging eyes. Thyroid removal is one of several options for treatment. Discuss all the options and their implications before choosing one. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
Graves eye disease. If you have Graves eye disease and you are also hyperthyroid, there is a risk of exacerbating the eye disease when treating the thyroid. Some people believe this is less likely with surgery than with RAI. In general, surgery is a reasonable ooption, but make sure the surgeon is an experienced thyroid surgeon.
