In brief: In addition...

Other than functional problems, the thyroid gland can enlarge (a goiter) or form benign or malignant masses without having any impairment in function.
In those cases, you can be asymptomatic other than feeling like something is stuck in your throat, throat tightness, or difficulty with swallowing.
