The report shows a multinodular goitre. This means the thyroid gland has developed many lumps or nodules. This can be a Non-Toxic Multinodular Goiter or a Toxic Multinodular Goiter (when it produces excess thyroxine) or sometimes it could be due to thyroid cancer. Only further investigations like thyroid function tests and if needed a biopsy may help to diagnose the cause. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Understand your predicament. A Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) or a biopsy of the thyroid gland or a biopsy of the node may help to make a diagnosis. A biopsy facilitates a histologic study of cells, which gives you a definite diagnosis. So once you have the diagnosis therapy can be planned appropriately.
