Hi,
My 2 year old was just diagnosed with a small goiter. We are scheduled for bloodwork in a few days. I was dx with hypothyroidism shortly after giving birth. My biggest fear is the goiter getting very big. Does anyone have info on children with goiters? Do they ever go away or will she have this forever?
