Brief Answer: Hi and welcome to XXXXXXX Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. If there is no abnormality in your thyroid hormonal levels then this is absolutely normal and you just need to repeat US and thyroid hormones in 6-8 months. It is normal to have big gland because every other organ size differs from man to man depending mostly on genetics. So this is nothing to worry about. But if there is hormonal imbalance then it may indicate certain thyroid disorders,but till your t3 and t4 findings are fine, there is no need for treatment. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask.
