Thyroid hormone replacement therapy is another treatment for goiters. This treatment is used to treat an under-active thyroid gland or hypothyroidism. This medication replicates the normal thyroid hormone and effectively kick-starts the thyroid gland. It also can be useful in preventing a goiter from growing and in post-surgery thyroid cancer treatment.
