hollysmith92: I do and they are almost always normal.. Don’t worry! Are they solid or cystic? If solid they will likely grow due to vascular supply. Just keep going for follow ups and don’t stress!

I have a goiter, I’m not sure if it is the same thing. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism around 6 years ago. My goiter has gotten considerably smaller since then. It used to be visible just looking at my neck, now it isn’t.

hollysmith92:  Please dont worry. Thyroid nodules are incredibly common first of all, loads of people (especially women) have them, including myself and at least 5 other women that I can think of, including both my mother and my Mother-In-Law. Almost all the time, they are benign. You just go for the ultrasound every year and don’t worry 🙂

Even If they by some vague chance became cancerous, thyroid cancer has one of the highest surviving rates ever – They ‘just’ remove your thyroid and you take thryoxine for the rest of your life. 

I’m a huge hypochondriac myself and have hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and when they told me I freaked out… until I realized how common it is. 

Just relax, forget about it, and go for the ultrasound again next year 🙂

I’ve had them for years.  I have some that grow, shrink, diappear then reappear, all crazy.  Doc says they’re all fine and nothing suspicious shows up in tests.

My dad has one and his thyroid level is fine.  My aunt however just had her whole thyroid gland removed. I’ve had thyroid issues my whole life so I’m always concerned. Just remember to get it checked and be on the lookout for symptoms (horse voice, cough that won’t go away, etc.). hypothyroid symptoms would be weight gain, extreme fatigue, stuff like that. If you have those symptoms get a full thyroid check not just a TSH. They didn’t catch my issues until they did a full panel, T3,T2,T4, and TSH
