Our expert says:
I don't think he plans to do nothing at all, but if your thyroid function is normal, there is a chance that the goiter will go down by itself without treatment and he would probably just need to follow up for a few months. If he operates, you will have to use medication for the rest of your life. It can be caused by not getting in enough iodene (rare these days but check that you buy iodized salt) or due to an auto immune inflammation of the thyroid. I think you should keep an eye on it, if it gets bigger or you develop symptoms of over or underactive thyroid, you should go back for a follow up examination and bloodtests
