Thanks for your query.
Colloidal goitre is as a result of iodine deficiency.It is more common to females than males.If the gland increases in size then only your doctor will advise you further management most likely a surgical.
Till there is no increase in size,and thyroid function(T3,T4,TSH) is normal there is no need for treatment.
Hope this answer is helpful to you.
Take care.

Hello Deepthi
Thank you for getting in touch with us. Thyroid problems often interfere with menstrual periods. In many patients, increase in TSH(thyroid stimulating hormone) can lead to an increase in prolactin which disrupts normal functioning of the female reproductive system. In your case, your T3, T4 and TSH levels are normal. Colloid goiter is very common and is usually seen in areas where iodine is not available freely. It is easily treatable by increasing the iodine content of the diet or thyroid hormone replacement therapy. I would advise you to get in touch with your local health centre so that a few more tests can be conducted to find out the exact cause. Hope this helped.
