Re: Enlarge Thyroid

Another word for enlarged thyroid is a goiter. It often happens from thyroid diseases such as hashimotos, where antibodies attack the thyroid.

An adenoma is a growth, or nodule on the thyroid, often benign. A cyst is often a fluid filled growth or nodule, usually benign. If the adenoma or cyst is around 1cm it should be needle biopsied to determine that the cells in there are okay.
