I've been reading the forum now for about a year and this is my first post. There seems there is a lot of good info out here, so I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this or heard of this problem.
Over the past 3 years I have done 5 cycles with good/very good results and very few side effects or problems. Over the 5 cycles my gear has consisted of Dbol,Deca,Test,Winny,Tren & GH. During my cycle last summer I went to my Doc to get blood work done, (like we all should) and he found a "lump" in my neck. My Doc is cool and knew everything I was on and said I shold have it checked out. I did and it turns out I had a tumor/goiter on my thyroid gland!! DAMN!! To make a long story short... it was benine (non-cancerous) and the surgeon I had is one of the best on this stuff and he removed it in September. However, he had to remove 3/4 of my throyid gland as well, and now i am permanently on Synthroid. I told my surgeon of all the gear I had just finished and of course he was "not a big fan" of that kind of stuff. But when I asked him if the "juice" could have caused that he said no. He said it is common in woment but not men (GREAT..just what i wanted to hear). He went on to say that in women it is mainly due to hormonal changes but in men, other than being heriditary, there is no real known cause, more good news from the surgeon. He said that he did not think that the steroids had anything to do with the tumor.. even though they cause hormonal changes... ???
Anyway.. I am fine now and back to normal. But the surgeon really did not give me any reasoning behind this. I have no history of this in my family.. so my question is .. has anyone ever heard of this or have any thoughts on this?? I wonder if the GH had something to do with it.. 15-20 iu pday. Could the GH have effected the thyroid like this ??
Any comments are welcome.
