Unfortunately I did not see your posts prior to being told that I should have a Thyroid Lobectomy 8 months ago. The nodule was benign but I have suffered ever since. My doctor is not an Endocrinologist but his wife has Graves Disease and so I felt he had knowledge in regard to the Thyroid. Should I seek a specialist? Will my symptoms ever be under control? Thank you.

I feel so stupid to ask this question but I cannot find any info on the internet and I have no insurance (until Feb 1st). I have a goiter in my thyroid gland and I have complained about it pulsating for years. At least 3-4 yrs. Well the Endocrine that I seen wanted to prescibe anxiety meds. I kept telling him that I feel it in my neck where the goiter is and I do not feel it is anxiety. Well tonight, I think it just ruptured. Bursted.  My question, is this dangerous?Thanks, Rhonda
