That is if it's not cancerous? Mine is very large with nodules, but isn't cancerous. I have Hashi and have been on Synthroid for about 8 years, but the goiter (lovely word) sometimes makes me uncomfortable. If one of my kids accidently touches my throat, it swells even bigger for a couple days. I always feel like someone has their thumb stuck in my neck.
I've wondered if you have Hashi and you remove the thyroid if your even more likely to develop another autoimmune disease? Is this a nutty question? Just wonder since our chances are higher than average anyway, if this could be like an invitation for our bodies to go after something else.
Sometimes I think I'd feel better just to get it out, but maybe that's too extreme.
