    Huge growing goiter!!!

    How fast do these darn things grow? It looks bigger everyday. Its in the front & also growing on the right side of my neck. Kinda tender on the right side of neck. Off syntheroid @ the moment cause I have a hospital thyroid uptake scan in a month. So embarrassing & starting to cause discomfort. MAIN QUESTION: How fast growing are they?

    There is no straight answer to your question. Hence not many have replied. Each person is different in how a nodule or goiter will react. The fact yours is growing so quickly would be of concern to me. I would ask for a consult with an ENT about it. Also how long have they taken you off your synthroid?

    Rate of growth can be weeks to years... it depends on what is causing the growth. Is it swelling or actual tissue generation. You really should call your MD and tell them of the excessive growth. If you have a digital camera try and take pictures of it to monitor the progress as well. This could be helpful to your MDs.

    I am sorry that you are suffering through this issue.

    If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.

    If the blood vessel ruptured inside thyroid , it can swell fast.
