The thyroid gland, located in the neck and around the trachea, is one of the largest glands in the body and is responsible for secreting the hormones needed to create metabolism as well assisting in a number of other functions in the body. There are several disorders that can occur with the thyroid that can cause either overproduction (hyperthyroid) or underproduction (hypothyroid) of those critical hormones.
There are varying causes of thyroid disorders, and the treatments range from medications to even surgery. It is important to monitor and test any abnormalities such as nodule formation on the thyroid.
