Voice loss and thyroid nodule - condensedI need some help in regard to my recent voice loss.
I get sore throat, maybe twice a year due to seasonal changes. Sometimes this is accompanied by a voice loss as well.
In the past 3-4 months, this voice loss has been more and more frequent even though I don't necessarily have a cold and the voice loss usually lasts a week. This is accompanied by slight increase in thyroid nodule.
This thyroid nodule was first noticed one and a half years ago. Was referred to endocrinologist. Blood tests, ultrasound, and FNA was normal. Endocrinologist asked me to repeat the blood tests once in 6 months to monitor thyroid hormone levels. Have been doing it and everything is normal.
10 days ago, I had cold symptoms accompanied by voice loss. Even though cold like symptoms went away in a couple of days, voice loss persists. Went to a new family doctor.
She said that my thyroid nodule seems to be big and seems to be putting a pressure on the nerves attached to the vocal chords. Hence, I'm unable to speak.
The doctor said that I would probably need surgery to remove this growth pressurizing my vocal chords. At the minimum, she said I would need at least radio therapy to eliminate this pressure so I can talk. She says, if I leave it like this, it might result in paralysis of nerve.
I am not keen on surgery and I am wondering if there are any alternate treatment options in homeopathy. I used homeopathy when I was in India till 2006 (now in US) and I have seen good results.
Any help you can provide in this regard will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
