    Anyone have a goitre?

    Does anyone on here suffer with an enlarged thyroid gland? I have what they call a multinodular goitre. An enlarged thyroid with multiple cysts and nodules. Does anyone suffer with this or know anyone that does?

    Did you get a biopsy? I had an ultrasound scan but having to wait 4 months to see the ENT. No biopsy or anything. One nodule is a complex cyst so I'm really worried.

    I had a huge nodule on my thyroid years ago and it was complex. I had to go get a needle biopsy and it was benign. It was just a cyst I guess and since then itís disappeared. Luckily things in the thyroid are rarely anything scary. Thatís what I learned after I went into a spiral and convinced myself I was going to die. It was my first huge health scare and I handled it well, as you can clearly see 😂

    Thank you, it's just I've not been offered a biopsy and have had to wait 4 months just to be seen since my scan! Very worried right now, it's good yours was benign! I think most are I'm just such a worrier x

    Will my goitre choke me??

    I have a multinodular goitre, sometimes it feels like I wearing a scarf my neck feels tight and horrible, and what with it being on my windpipe I'm panicking its going to close my airway and I will choke and die! I just had a horrible feeling like I couldnt swallow and i really panicked! So scared I'm gonna choke and die
