In brief: Goiter

If you consider a pimple a mass.
Goiter is an enlarged thyroid gland. Usually from inflammation, rarely infection, even more rarely from tumors or cysts. Some inflammatory area are called "nodules" and these can turn malignant.

In brief: Enlarged thyroid

Not a mass. There could be a mass within an enlarged thyroid though.
