In brief: Some are caused
By iodine deficiency, which is a reason for iodinized table salt.
..Those lacking seafood in the midwest and near west used to be so afflicted. Taking exogenous thyroid hormone (thyrolar, synthroid) may turn off TSH stimulation and reduce/diminish growth, but that is treatment rather than prevention. Excess TSH and unregulated growth cause goiters.
