    Kim, see your doctor about this. It could be an enlarged thyroid or lymph node.

    Hi, Kim,

    I suggest you go see your gp, this may not be related to menopause.  Goiters can be caused by problems with your thyroid glad, and it's best to have this considered.

    Best of luck to you, let me know how you do!

    Thyroid problem - underactive or overactive seems highly probable. Most of the women on my mums side of our family have this, and I was diagnosed a couple of years ago, and was prescribed thyroxine.  My sister and mum are on a pretty high dose, although I only needed the minimal dose, and after a while I stopped taking it as I was getting panic attacks and palpitations, and since then, with regular blood tests Ive been fine. A bit odd, because usually, if you are diagonsed, you have to be on medication for life, but I'm not complaining.
