Hello Student,
Goitre is swelling of neck or larynx caused by enlargement of thyroid gland. It generally occurs due to deficiency of iodine and is associated with hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism ie less or excess secretion of thyroxine hormone respectively.

A goitre or goiter is a swelling of the neck or larynx resulting from enlargement of the thyroid gland, associated with a thyroid gland that is not functioning properly.

Worldwide, over 90.54% cases of goitre are caused by iodine deficiency.

Worldwide, the most common cause for goitre is iodine deficiency, usually seen in countries that do not use iodized salt. Selenium deficiency is also considered a contributing factor. In countries that use iodized salt, Hashimoto's thyroiditis is the most common cause.

The thyroid gland is in the lower part of the front of the neck. It lies just in front of the windpipe (trachea). It has a right and left lobe which are connected together by a narrow band of thyroid tissue. It is roughly the shape of a butterfly. You cannot usually see or feel a normal thyroid gland. If the thyroid enlarges, it causes a swelling in the neck which you can see - a goitre.258-1664_goitre_1.jpg

Goiter is an abnormal enlargement of your thyroid gland. Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck just below your Adam's apple. Although goiters are usually painless, a large goiter can cause a cough and make it difficult for you to swallow or breathe.
