Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
There is no any trouble if you dont ignore this and start treatment with adequate medicines.So visit specialist even if your GP dont want to send you there!
This is easily treatable if there is no sign of cancer and all you need is to do frequent thyroid hormones check up and start with medicine for goiter.
It is hard to say is hair falling because of goiter or something else,but you cant find it until you stabilize your thyroid hormonal levels.
Wish you good health. Feel free to ask. Regards
