Hello sister! Indications for thyroid surgery depend on the nature and size of the tumor. Her cough could also be caused by a respiratory illness. Therefore, she needs to see an endocrinologist to determine the nature of the goiter and consider whether the cough is caused by a thyroid nodule that requires surgery. You can go to the hospitals of Vinmec Health System for medical examination and further advice.
Thank you for trusting Vinmec. Looking forward to meeting you for more specific advice!
