If the result showed a Euthyroid activity, then goitre may be nontoxic. In this case,it is to be watched as it may redress seemly by itself.

I am sure that you may have a nontoxic uninodular goitre. There is no easy relief to this. Kindly try on FNAC if it has any lesion instinct to it,after which it will be removed.

1. FNAC to ascertain if the nodule has changing cells with respect to its parenchymas,which I doubt. Anyway,just do it to avoid a regret not doing it.

2.a. Watching may be necessary as to see if it is growing in size or not. If it is not,probably it may not be a lesion and thus may not need a removal. But if it is,for your comfort it may be removed.

2.b. Procedure is no time wasting and largely pain free.

you should see an endocrinologist...u will do some test.then your doc will advice u on what to do.In my case,my result said normal thyroid hormone,so my consultant didn't prescribe any drug for me.did fnac test,yet to pick it up...will do that today.so I'll retest after a while to see if there are any changes in my thyroid hormone level...meanwhile my doc said for cosmetic reasons I can opt for surgery..but I don't want that now as mine is still small and not very notice able.

Oh, Thanks for the swift response, Ma... Actually, she has undergone all the Goitre what have you tests and diagnosis; she already has all the results sef - but her Endocrinologist consultant (something like that) said the size of her Goitre can't be operated on yet; that it can still be treated with some prescribed drugs. But as nature would have it; she came across some traditional Indian doctors here in Nigeria; and they gave her some drugs - that it would work magic within 3 Months. It did actually reduced the size of Goitre drastically to an unnoticeable size in the first 2 Months except when you're a few inches from her.... The issue now is that I'm now far away from home - i couldn't monitor the remaining 1 month; whenever we talk over the phone; i don't always like to bring up the Goitre of a thing in order to avoid emotions creeping up. I APOLOGISE FOR MY LONNNNNGGG EPISTLE. I was scouring for a possible solution prior my arrival just in case Indians drug didn't yield out the result we wanted not until i stumbled on your NL page and someone advised FNAC as the possible solution. She's afraid that the final final final outcome of the consultant would profer operation as the solution; she's in her late forties and she still does visit the Consultant in every 2months interval for monitoring. I'm just seeking for other possible means where it can be treated. Thanks for your Patience, Ma.

good she is already seeing a doc....my consultant didn't mention any drug to me...maybe cos mine was non toxic and normal thyroid hormone level as at the time I tested.fnac is not a possible solution but one of the test I was asked to do... the two options he gave me was 1st wait and see approach so he will know if it will increase in size 2nd is surgery for cosmetic reason to feel and look nice without anyone asking u want is wrong with your neck.he even referred me to the surgical dept for expert advice....but I don't think I want to do that now.mine is still small and not very noticeable just taking precautionary measures so it doesn't increase in size.which hospital is she using?

Okay, Ma; Please, i'll like to implore you to never allow it to debar you from undergoing outdoor activities that you love most just because of questions you think people may ask; i want you to know that we can never control things life throws at us; but we can control the way we react with them - It is called perception... I pray that God sees us through this. Amen.
