If the thyroid is the most likely cause of the swallowing and breathing problems, then surgery may be indicated. You mention very small nodules -- largest 6mm -- so unless the entire thyroid is significantly enlarged (diffuse goiter due to Hashi) then hard to conclude the thyroid is causing compressive symptoms.
thanks for your reply how large would the nodoels have to be before they would operate ?the swallowing and breathing and great pain and swelling is due to the thyriod difficulty speaking at times a wide range of syptoms what did you mean diffuse gotier ?thanks again for your reply
