Thanks for posting the query

I think there is some misunderstanding, there is a swelling in the thyroid and not the lungs

The report is suggestive of colloid goitre, this occurs usually due to iodine deficiency resulting in reduced synthesis of thyroid hormones

There are two type of goitre simple and multinodular

Get a sonography or scan of thyroid done to come to a diagnosis of the type

No it has nothing to do with cancer

Hope all clear, Am available for followup

Wishing your friend's wife a speedy recovery

Thanks for posting your follow-up query.

As I have mentioned earlier get a sonography done.

If it is simple goiter and cosmetically not big medicines may be tried.

If it is multinodular, surgery is needed.

In either case medicines are required according to thyroid hormone levels.

Hope all clear, do accept my reply if there are no further queries.

Wishing the patient a speedy recovery.
