I've been diagnosed with multi nodules in my thyroid in 2001. Good thing it was detected early so I was given the proper medicine to control the nodules from growing bigger.
Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who may have thyroid disorders but aren't aware until it's too late. It is important to have one's thyroid checked as early as possible, especially if there's a family history of the disease. or during pregnancy. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure.
