Thyroid Awareness and Importance

Have you had your neck checked? There are a number of different symptoms that may suggest that you need medical attention. One of the most common thyroid symptom is finding a lump or nodule in the area of your neck where the thyroid is located. During a neck check, physicians look for any signs of swelling or for a lump/thyroid nodule.
