this condition can cause miscarriages, premature births, and intrauterine growth retardation for the baby if not taking proper treatment for it. You can also develop high blood pressure because of it.

I am 9 weeks post partum. I have had multinodular goiter prior to pregnancy and I went for an ultra sound yesterday and it showed hardly any normal tissue on left side. I had 2 biopsies prior to pregnancy and the result was negative. Should I be worried about anything serious? Is there a chance that things will calm down and it can be left alone?

I was diagnosed 3 years ago with a multinodule goiter, but now my endo is sending me to a surgeon because my thyroud has grown, isthmus 8mm up from 3, and I now have a new 3 mm hypoechoic nodule in th posterior aspect of the lower pole of the right lobe. he ordered the ct because I am having trouble swollowing, constantly sick and fatigue is worsening dispite levothyroxine. my wbc are high, neutrophils low and lymphocytes high, should i be concerned?

Hi, I just found out I have hypothyroidism with a multinodular goiter. I ve been having difficulty swallowing (choking on liquids) for a while now so they are doing a CT scan of my neck today to see if it has anything to do with the goiter. I m 25 years old and the goiter is not large enough to notice when you look at my neck...could it still be the cause of my dysphagia?

I have been having what my doctor has called palpitations for the past month, i.e. my heart has been racing unpleasantly. She suggested thyroid or anameia and I have had blood tests, am awaiting the results. Also I had an ECG which is said to show nothing untoward. I am 66 years old and female and I am concerned about the experience of heart racing. I feel as if I am anxious, frightened, and yet I know I'm not. Sometimes these effects last over half an hour, and sometimes eating sweet things sets it off.
