    Hello, Goiter is a neck swelling that arises if you have deficiency iodine stores. Unless it's big enough to obstruct your throat, sore throat is one of its rare symptoms. Sore throat might be a symptom for cough. With the painful swallowing, it might also be pointing to a swelling in your throat. You need to see an Ent surgeon. He will check your throat to be sure, he will also confirm if you have a Goiter. Take care
