What is Thyroid?
The thyroid is a gland present in the neck region that is responsible for regulating the metabolism. It releases two hormones called thyroxine and tri-iodothyronine. Many functions of the body are controlled by this thyroid gland. Blood pressure, heartbeat, and metabolism all are maintained by the thyroid gland. Problems with the hormone secretion in the thyroid can cause different conditions called hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and even cancer.
What are the Causes of the Disease?
People can develop cancer because of many reasons like the ones:
- Radiation exposure can lead to cancer
- People who have a history of thyroid cancer
- Individuals who are getting aged and are over 40 years
- Any surgery in the past can result in the cancer too
When a patient has developed the disease he/she would have the following symptoms:
- You are having pain and irritation in your neck region
- Swollen neck area
- Hair loss
- Dry mouth
When a person is facing such symptoms, it is necessary to consult your doctor.
To complete your diagnosis your doctor will do physical exams, MRIs, and biopsies. First of all, during your consultation, your physician will examine the lumps in your neck region. Then after the physical exams, the doctor will take imaging tests to make visuals of the thyroid and other surrounding areas.
Through these blood tests, levels of thyroid hormones and other substances are measured. To check the working of the thyroid gland sometimes your doctor takes a part of your thyroid tissues to examine it under a microscope, the process is termed a biopsy.
