Has anyone else had a goiter?

and if so, how did they shrink it or get rid of it? Mine has grown to the point where it's uncomfortable. I have an appointment for a thyroid ultrasound tomorrow and am a little nervous..

  • Goiters develop due to lack of iodine in the diet. This is why salt is iodized because salt used to be widely used. I would suggest taking iodine supplements. Thyroid can't function properly without it.
