Hi there,
There can be a number of causes of hypothyroidism like autoimmune disease, treatment for hyperthyroidism, radiation therapy, thyroid surgery and certain medications. Kidney diseases, liver diseases and acute hemolytic anemia can cause low globulin levels. Low globulin levels are usually associated with antibody deficiency. If your investigations like ultrasound and WBC counts are normal then the chances of thyroid cancer are very less. It is best to discuss your concerns with your doctor. He knows your medical history completely so will be in best position to advise. A complete clinical examination is very important for accurate diagnosis. Do keep me posted.
Best of luck and regards!
