I have been diagnosed with enlarged thyroid gland and swollen lymph nodes. Is surgery the only option for it.
Dear user, that is decided based on the type of swelling. It could be a simple goitre or a malignant condition which would require a thyroidectomy which are of many types. This is decided by the surgeon after a proper diagnosis is made with all the required tests done. However the surgery will be done inly if needed and you will have to maintain your thyroid levels at normal for sometime. If you found my answer helpful, please leave a positive feedback as it helps me with my practice. Thank you.

Lymph vessels and nodes help us to fight diseases and also keep dirty things out of body. As there are lymph nodes we have to know the exact cause of these nodes. These may be enlarged due to TB or several other reasons. Contact some surgeon or onco-surgeon for biopsy or FNAC of lesions Convey your reports to me Let me know your progress.

Constant touch will not enlarge it. Enlarged lymph node usually may be due to infection or a tumour. You should consult local physician asap.

OBJECTIVE: The currently recommended treatment for lymph node tuberculosis is 6 months of rifampicin and isoniazid plus pyrazinamide for the first 2 months, given either daily or thrice weekly. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of a 6-month twice-weekly regimen and a daily two-drug regimen. METHODS: Patients with biopsy confirmed superficial lymph node tuberculosis were randomly allocated to receive either a daily self-administered 6-month regimen of rifampicin and isoniazid, or a twice-weekly, directly observed, 6-month regimen of rifampicin and isoniazid plus pyrazinamide for the first 2 months, in Madurai, South India, Patients were followed up for 36 months after completing treatment. RESULTS: Of 277 enrolled patients, data was available for analysis in 268. At the end of treatment, 116 of 134 [87%; 95% confidence interval (CI) 81-93%] patients in each treatment group had a favourable clinical response; 14 (11%; 95% CI 6-16%) and 17 (13%; 95% CI 7-19%) patients had a doubtful response, and 4 (3%; 95% CI 0-6%) and 1 (1%; 95% CI 0-2%) patients had an unfavourable response among those treated with the daily and twice-weekly regimen, respectively. During 36 months after completion of treatment, five patients [2 (2%; 95% CI 1-3%) and 3 (2%; 95% CI 1-3%) patients treated with the daily and twice-weekly regimen, respectively] had relapse of lymph node tuberculosis, of 260 assessed. Adverse reactions probably attributable to the treatment regimens occurred in 1% of the patients treated daily and in 11% of those treated twice-weekly (P < 0.001). At the end of 36 months after treatment, 126 of 134 (94%; 95% CI 90-98%) and 129 of 134 (96%; 95% CI 94-98%) of the patients treated with the daily and twice-weekly regimen, respectively, had a successful outcome. CONCLUSION: Both the self-administered daily regimen and the fully observed twice-weekly regimen were highly efficacious for treating patients with lymph node tuberculosis and may be considered as alternative options to the recommended regimens.
