Thyroid growths can be of three types,Nodule - a single nodule may develop on one side.Multi - nodular -several nodules. It can be on one side of the neck or on both sides.Diffuse - not 'lumpy' like a multinodular but a smooth growth.Again, it can be:Toxic - when there is excess production of thyroid hormonesNon- Toxic - when there is no excess production.The treatment options are really decided by the type of growth. You will be investigated by three main investigations, an FNAC to find the type of growth, that is, whether it is malignant or benign; an ultrasound to determine whether it is smooth, multinodular or a single nodule; and blood tests for the thyroid hormone levels, to determine whether it is increased, decreased or normal.You should discuss with your doctor about these investigations, this can lead to a proper diagnsosis for you and cure for your symptoms.
