A friend of mine asked me this question yesterday and I did not have an answer that I was 100 percent sure was correct. As I understand, a large thyroid gland is caused by either Graves or Hashimoto's when the thyroid gland hypertrophies in order to attempt to or make more hormone. Am I off on this? I am sure it is not as black and white but can one develop an enlarged thyroid when on medication if they are simply just hypo?
