I have goiter for almost two years now, I'm scared to have an operation but needs it to be treated soon because its becoming larger each day, I wish it can be cured through medicine only and no operation because I am very afraid of medical operation. My problem also with medicine only to take is we don't have enough money to avail of it. Do you know any treatment?

Hi, we do have same problems, but now i am considering surgical solution because my kind of goiter is a complex one. There is a complex cyst which is growing larger, and my endo advised me to have it removed and biopsied for she is not really sure of its growth if it is cancerous or not. FNA results says it is colloidal goiter, non-toxic and benign. If u feel you are not ready yet to have surgery, you can try this website, www.greenlife-herbal.com. I tried the herbal treatment for a year and i felt it has delayed its growth. Other users claimed their goiter has totally healed, the herbal meds is called "Thyroid-Throu"...

I'm sorry I don't but have you asked the doctor if there is anything in your diet you could do? Maybe you could eat certain foods that would keep it from becoming larger. Good luck.
