Author(s): Dr. Vandana Shukla
Abstract: The normal thyroid gland is a fairly homogenous structure, but nodules often form within its substance. These nodules may be only the growth and fusion of localized colloid-filled follicles, or more or less discrete adenomas, or cysts. Benign nodular goitre is one of the most common endocrine disorders, especially in countries where iodine deficiency is endemic . Management of thyroid nodules depends upon an assessment of thyroid function, fine needle aspiration cytology and imaging. Nodular goitre presents rarely before middle age and maximum found in females than in males . Adenomatous or colloid multinodular goitre (MNG) are common, occurring in three to five percent of the general population, haemorrhage, fibrosis and calcification is found within goiters. Though a few cases records can be seen in past where the success gain by homoeopathic medicines, but proper assessment does not define the case was presented here which is treated by homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium over a period of 6 months with steady improvement.
