"I'm assuming this is from the iodine??"
that would NOT be an ASSinine ASSumption.
goiter is a swelling of the tissue. edema can be caused by dehydration and drought.
water, sodium and potassium. hit the basics. hit the antioxidants hard. vitamin
C. even try to supplement oxygen.
the only other thing i can think of is if there is an herb that might help or perhaps fasting.
the master herbalist textbook mentions bayberry, burdock, oak and poke for goiter.

I don't have goiter but I can say that taking 50mg of iodoral did nothing for my asthma. When I started experimenting with large doses of SSKI, I noticed an immediate improvement in my asthma. For the 1st time in 30 years, I don't need any more VERY EXPENSIVE inhalers.
SSKI is 30mg per drop. I suggest starting with a squirt per day (about 400mg). Maybe your thyroid will react like my lungs did, I think it is worth a try. It can't hurt.
So I continue to take 50mg iodoral and I take 2 squirts of SSKI daily (about 800mg).
PS) One of my favorite sources of information, Wicki said this: " If goiter is untreated for around five years, however, iodine supplementation or thyroxine treatment may not reduce the size of the thyroid gland because the thyroid is permanently damaged."
