Hello Rere, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Looking at the drugs given, the possibility of a lump in your mother's neck is an enlargement of the thyroid gland and your mother has hyperthyroidism too. This hyperthyroidism can be caused by various possibilities, including:
Graves 'disease, which is an autoimmune disease, in which the body produces an antibody that triggers excessive thyroid hormone production by the thyroid gland, hyperactive thyroid nodules, such as toxic adenomas, multinodular goiters or Plummers' disease. This nodule is a kind of benign tumor in the thyroid gland that is too actively producing thyroid hormone. Thyroiditis or inflammation of the thyroid gland To answer your next questions it is very important to know more clearly the cause of hyperthyroidism in your mother. Therapy for each of the above conditions and whether this disease can be inherited or not, can vary in each of the diseases mentioned.
If until now your mother still feels symptoms of hyperthyroidism, such as weight loss, rapid heart rate and palpitations, irregular heartbeat, increased appetite, anxiety, irritability, tremors, frequent sweating, heat resistance, frequent bowel movements , excessive fatigue and weakness in the muscles, sleep disorders, etc., you should immediately check your mother back to an internist who treated her first. Basically, hyperthyroidism is a disease that requires repeated monitoring and laboratory examinations, so you cannot just come in once, take medication and recover. Control back to the doctor is very very important and very very necessary.
It is better to do an immediate examination because the long-term complications of hyperthyroidism cannot be considered mild. Untreated hyperthyroidism can cause permanent heart problems, osteoporosis and weakness in bones, eye disorders, and sufferers can also experience what is called a thyrotoxicosis crisis. This condition is an emergency condition that requires immediate treatment and intensive care.
