Well... im just curious about this... does a persons emotional problem greatly contribute for the development of a possible goiter illness to a person? For example when it comes to work, your mind couldn't accept the nature of your work but you are pushed to do what you don't want... cause of heavy burdens and mind and body contradiction... Any explanation for this?

No it doesn't at all. A goiter comes from lack of certain elements in the food and generally patients who have a goiter are prescribed to use iodised salt as part of their diet. If this does not fix the problem, then there is the possibility that it can be removed through surgery. However, sometimes the inclusion of the iodised salt in the diet will reduce the goiter. If you have any doubts at all, then you should see a doctor who will be the best person to advise you on what to do about the goiter.
