    It depends on how large the goitre is ..

    in advanced cases , patient would normally present with a lump that he or she can feel in the neck.

    In early cases , it can be an incidental finding on scans being done usually for another reason like neck pain and so forth 

    most goitres that have nodules more than 1 cm in diameter should be subjected to ultrasound guided needle biopsy to exclude any risk of malignancy. 

    hope this helps
