In brief: Yes

Enlargement of one side or the whole gland is an abnormality, At her age an auto immune thyroid inflammation is a likely cause & this could result in too much or too little thyroid hormone production.
It could also be something worse. It is time for you to get her in for an evaluation & testing.
