After a medical checkup, Randy has to see a specialist because of some swelling on his neck. According to the specialist, it could be a simple goiter, which is harmless; it could be hypothyroidism which is treatable with a daily pill; or it could serious thyroid cancer, which may require surgery or worse, much to Jill and Tim's horror. And it will take a day to for the test results to come through to determine which one it is, leaving the family anxiously biting their nails waiting for the answer.
