In brief: Ultrasound

No one can force you.
Doctor can recommend because you have an enlarged gland or they are searching for nodules or growths in your gland.

In brief: Examination

The thyroid ultrasound can see if you have any abnormal growths in the thyroid such as cysts or tumors.
Often, patients who have trouble swallowing, or voice problems, or an abnormal lump on physical examination will undergo thyroid ultrasound.
