Medications If you have hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, medications to treat these conditions may be enough to shrink a goiter. Medications (corticosteroids) to reduce your inflammation may be used if you have thyroiditis. Surgeries Surgical removal of your thyroid, known as thyroidectomy, is an option if yours grows too large or doesn’t respond to medication therapy. Radioactive iodine In people with toxic multinodular goiters, radioactive iodine (RAI) may be necessary. The RAI is ingested orally, and then travels to your thyroid through your blood, where it destroys the overactive thyroid tissue. Home care Depending on your type of goiter, you may need to increase or decrease your iodine intake at home. If a goiter is small and doesn’t cause any problems, you may require no treatment at all.
Needs further investigation and evaluation to conclude particularly thyroid profile, RAI and USG or MRI neck and decide line of treatment as per reports.
Thank you doctor
