A goiter is a swollen thyroid gland that can form a lump at the front of the neck. Goiters vary in size but are mostly small and often don’t result in symptoms. Where they do occur, symptoms may include: a cough, a tight-feeling throat, voice changes (e.g. hoarseness), dysphagia (difficulties with swallowing), breathing problems (e.g. you may create a high-pitched sound when you breathe).

Here you will find medical experts who are specialized in the treatment of goiters.
