An estimated 64,000 patients each year in the USA will be diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Thyroid cancer is usually very treatable and is often cured with surgery and, if indicated, radioactive iodine. Effective treatment is available even when thyroid cancer is more advanced. If you suspect a lump or nodule in your thyroid, contact us now to schedule an evaluation.
Thyroid nodules are quite common. They are uncommon in children and young adults, but they may be found in half of people over the age of 80. Fortunately, most nodules are benign (non-cancerous). Call the Thyroid Institute today to schedule an appointment.
An underactive thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone and leads to low energy levels. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the USA. If you have questions regarding the diagnosis and treatment of hypothyroidism, make an appointment to learn how we can help.
An overactive thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone and leads to increased metabolism. Graves’ disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. If your symptoms suggest hyperthyroidism, make an appointment to learn how we can help.
About 1 in 600 people have primary hyperparathyroidism (overactive parathyroid). Minimally-invasive parathyroid surgery is the recommended treatment. If your primary care physician notes high calcium levels, contact us for an evaluation.
