Thyroid gland

The thyroid gland is a central hormone-active (endocrine) organ and is located in the front center of the neck, and is also palpable. The most common thyroid diseases are simple nodular formations (goiter, goiter) and are usually harmless. Malignant diseases (thyroid cancer, papillary thyroid carcinoma, medullary thyroid carcinoma) must be immediately subjected to clarification and targeted treatment. Thyroid dysfunctions (hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyreopathy) can be diagnosed with ultrasound, scintigraphy and blood laboratory and are also easily treatable.(Link to Thyroid Care Center)
