|"Goiter" is a human term meaning an enlargement of the thyroid gland. Dogs suffering from thyroid problems get hypothyroid, which is a shrinking, or atrophy, of the thyroid gland.
What your beagle has is a mass on it's throat region. Maybe a fatty lump, maybe an inflammed salivary or lymph gland. A vet visit is needed to find out exactly what it is. If it's oozing and bleeding, then I suggest a vet visit sooner than later.
