Effects of a Goiter?


The word 'goiter' refers to any enlargement of the thyroid gland. Sometimes this happens when the body is not producing enough thyroid hormone, such as when dietary iodine levels are too low. Medications have also been linked to goiters. In rare cases, a goiter is responsible for more serious effects on the health, especially if it puts a lot of pressure on the esophagus and windpipe. This can result in trouble breathing and swallowing, as well as coughing and a hoarse voice.
