    What is the best treatment for this type of goiter? Can it shrink on its own? May l know if there’s another way of treatment apart from surgery for this condition,Retro-sternal goiter.
    I was taken for surgery but the surgeon didn’t remove it, he said it was difficult to remove because of it location.
