Thyroid lumps are called goiter, caused by lack of potassium iodine (aka iodine). Breasts and Thyroids need potassium iodine and all the other cells in our bodies need Iodine, including Ovaries and all sex organs (even prostate!).
If thyroid labs only contain TSH test, that isn't enough. FT3/FT4 should also be tested. T4 is storage hormone and F (free) T3 is the amount of active hormone in your blood. Besides Iodine, it's important to have all the nutrients for convert T4 to T3. Some of them include iron, selenium, magnesium, etc.
Get educated: www.StopTheThyroidMadness.com and Dr David Brownstein's books: "Iodine, why we need it and can't live without it" and "Overcoming thyroid disorders". A product my daughter is getting good results on is: BioSuperfood from Optitumchoices.com. Dr Brownstein recommends Iodoral.
