A goiter is an enlargement of the thyroid gland that is not associated with cancer.
There are several kinds that can occur.
A simple goiter, which usually occurs when the thyroid gland is not able to produce enough thyroid hormone, may be classified as either an endemic (colloid) goiter or a sporadic (nontoxic) goiter.
