THYROID AND PARATHYROID DISORDERS
The thyroid gland is located in the middle of the lower neck, below the larynx (voice box) and just above your clavicles (collarbones). It is shaped like a bow tie, having two halves (lobes): a right lobe and a left lobe joined by an isthmus. The parathyroid glands are very small bean shaped glands located very near the thyroid gland. The parathryoid glands regulate calcium levels in the body.
Diseases of the thyroid gland are very common, affecting millions of Americans. ENT Surgeons are usually involved in the workup and surgical treatment of lumps in the thyroid which might represent cancer. Parathyroid surgery is usually for a benign growth of glands which are overactive and causing symptoms.
