      I am one of the early persons who posted a concern. After all the posts and updates, I need to add an update.  After having problems with my thyroid, I saw a specialist where I was diagnosed with 5 nodules and a goiter. They were removed and all turned out to be benign.  Am on thyroid meds.  The doc still checks me for reoccurence. Interesting posts folks. Good luck to everyone.

I have done research over the years, but have since lost that research.

She was distressed that the doctor's wanted to do the procedure, but they claimed it was necessary. She did not not understand the why.
