As per description, it is evident that you just have a goitre. With normal thyroid function tests, no malignancy and after radio iodine ablation, you have two choices.
If it is not bothering you much, you can leave it as such
if you are concerned for cosmetic reasons then you can get it removed surgically.
There is no third option.
You must have been given this choice?
Are you there?
Has your doctor given you a choice of thyroid surgery?
Yes they have, but they said i can try iodine first
but after a year it feels pressed
Do you have apprehensions regarding thyroid surgery because it will help you to get rid of this problem permanently.
pressed just more the other day, and less the other day
iodine is that only to get it less ?
Medically yes it is the only thing which can be taken to reduce its size.
The second option is surgical.
There is no other option to reduce the size of thyroid.
