Multinodular Goiter

Posted by johol

 have an enlarged thyroid gland and have just been diagnosed with a multinodular goitre on the underside of my thyroid gland one of which is over a cm in size. I have thyroid antibodies in my blood system but my TSH levels are all normal. I am having the operation to remove the thyroid and then getting a biopsy. I am 31 years old and originally my doctor spotted my enlarged thyroid about 13 years ago, but did a Thyroid function test and as it came back normal it was then ignored until very recently. My question is this, what does all this mean and should I be worried about cancer etc.

you should not be worried about cancer as if it would have been a cancer,then swelling would have grown rapidly,painful causing difficulty in breathing and eating along with loss of weight.

yes i was diagnosed twice with tyroid cancer. my goiter was found and grew bigger and bigger very fast. i had a ot of different signs. the goiter was not painful just a lot of discomfort. my hair was falling out, i was emotional, had psriosis all over my arms, bruised very easily, etc.

deffinatly do not stress about it though. the best thing and only thing you can do is listen to the doctors and do what they recommend
