In brief: Depends on the cause

Some enlarged thyroid glands may need radiation , some need medications, some need surgery, some need both.
Let an endocrinologist evaluate your thyroid and find out the cause first. That will determine how to reduce the size, but it's more portent to normalize the function of the thyroid and make sure there is no cancer.
