How to Treat Goitre?

Medical Treatment:
The treatment will depend on:
  • The symptoms the goitre is causing
  • The goitre size
  • Whether you have any underlying thyroid condition
Treatment for a goitre can include medication, hormone therapy, and surgery. If tests reveal a thyroid gland problem, treatment may be given for:
  • An overactive thyroid gland, which may include taking a type of medicine known as thionamides or a type of radiotherapy called radioiodine treatment
  • An underactive thyroid gland, which usually involves taking a synthetic hormone called levothyroxine to replicate your normal thyroid function
