Back in March I noticed my thyroid was enlarged. All of the women in my family have thyroid disease so I'm always aware of what to look out for. I went to the Dr. she ordered an ultrasound. The ultrasound basically said there were no nodules just an enlarged thyroid.
My blood work came back fine. My TSH was 1.87 and my Free T4 was 1.57. My Dr. said I could do the thyroid uptake scan but it wasn't necessary since the blood work was fine.
So a couple weeks ago my throat because very aggitated. It was sore on the outside, hard to swallow, I had to keep clearing my throat, and sometimes I would find myself choking without eating or anything.
I went to a different doctor today and he said "your thyroid is massive"... It's noticeably enlarged. He has me doing ANOTHER ultrasound on Thursday and did a full thyroid work up.
My question is, if my results come back normal what can be done about this enlargement?? It's really bothersome, I don't want them to just say "ok you're fine" b/c it's not fine.
Any help/thoughts would be great.
