Thyroid/Parathyroid Surgery

The thyroid and parathyroid glands are part of the body’s endocrine system. The thyroid helps regulate metabolism, while the parathyroid – which are located behind the thyroid gland in the neck – helps your body control calcium levels in the blood.

Your doctor may recommend surgery due to:

  • Small growths, such as nodules or cysts
  • Overactive thyroid
  • Thyroid or parathyroid cancer
  • Noncancerous tumors that are causing problems
  • Swelling or goiters that makes it hard for you to breathe or swallow
  • Hyperparathyroidism – Parathyroids are producing too much parathyroid hormone
