My mother was diagnosed with Hashimoto thyroid, and she was told to watch for signs of it in her daughter, which is me. She took me once when I was little to her thyroid doctor and he then could already tell that I had the disease. She was told to take me in after I had, had my period for a year. So I was taken in over the summer to get my blood and ultrasound done. The blood results came back fine but they had found a tumor on my thyroid in the ultrasound. So two weeks later I was back in there getting a biopsy done to see if it was cancerous. Luckily it wasn't, so since my thyroid is still acting well, my doctor didn't put me on medication. Well, now when I go places many people are drinking, and I don't join in, mostly because I have no interest in it, but also because I don't know if alcohol will do anything to my thyroid. So I was wondering if anyone here knew...Does drinking alcohol do anything to my thyroid, or even the tumor on my thyroid?
