Amber Frey has a Goiter?

The 15 minute of fame witness, Amber Frey, in the Scott Peterson conviction was on Fox News talking about her new book. While she was being interviewed, I noted a fullness in her long swan neck that moved up, and down when she talked or swallowed. This is most likely a goiter. I emailed the show to pass on my observation to her. Most people look into a person's eyes, but I look at their neck! An occupational habit. Most people wear their thyroid like a bow tie, and this can usually be seen if one makes a point to look. Family doctors need to learn that skill, if they are ever going to diagnose thyroid goiter early.
