YES!  Goiters are lack of iodine (actually potassium iodide). Read Dr David Brownstein's books: "Iodine, Why we need it and can't live without it" and "Overcoming Thyroid Disorders".   Check out www.StopTheThyroidMadness.com - great info and resources.  My daughter, 35, is hypothyroid and is doing great on a bioalgae product call BioSuperfood (www.optimumchoices.com).  Based on her results, I'm trying it although my thyroid was removed in 2004.  There are definite dietary changes she will have to make in order to support her adrenals and thyroid.  Lots to learn, but it's so very worth it to feel better and avoid endless suffering without a thyroid.
