Nodules and Iodine Deficiency, auto immune?

From: Michelle_Lela - 1 year 36 weeks ago

I have been diagnosed with multi nodule goiter , it was biopsied and said to be benign. My blood test normal. The doctors want me to have surgery to remove the thyroid.
I am wondering if iodine deficiency could be the cause and could iodine supplements help? I also have had my hair fall out in quarter size patches. I have been told that is auto immune. Could this be connected?

Any experience or suggestions appreciated. thanks.
