  • I had a goiter on the right side and it was about the size of a racquetball.  I had it removed about 4 years ago, and everything was fine with me.  The only pain I really had was from the tube they had down the throat.  There is always a chance that they could hit a nerve to the vocal chords but I'm not sure what that would do.  I hope that the surgery goes will for you and it's not that bad.
