Brief Answer:
Very unlikely!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for contacting us at healthcare magic.

I have reviewed this information fully. There is no documented relationship between thyroid growths and intolerance to medications. It’s unlikely that this can be an explanation. Nodules often represent areas with hyper functioning thyroid activity. In some cases, this might represent concerning tumors.

I am happy that your doctors will be investigating this, establish the cause and a treatment plan. I will be grateful if you could as well share the findings from this visit with me for more insights and guidance.

I wish you well.
