When the thyroid gland becomes enlarged, it is referred to as a goiter. This will feel or appear as a lump in the neck. If it continues to grow, it can put pressure on the windpipe (trachea) and food pipe (esophagus) resulting in difficulty swallowing and breathing, a choking sensation, and pressure in the neck.
Goiters can develop due to nodules, Graves’ disease, and hyperthyroidism. This means the goiters will not go away on their own. Treatment begins with identifying the cause of the goiter. In some cases, thyroid surgery may be recommended.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms described above, please schedule an appointment with us today so we can determine the underlying cause and create a treatment plan. Schedule your appointment at the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center today. Call 847-685-1000
