You might need Thyroid Surgery if…

By: Dr. Shatul Parikh

You have an abnormal growth (nodule) on your thyroid, develop thyroid cancer, or start making too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism). The problem is that thyroid complications often go undiagnosed. If you feel like you have one or more of the following symptoms, do not hesitate to call Northwest ENT and Allergy Center.

  • Trembling
  • Heat Intolerance
  • Fast or Uneven Heartbeats
  • Wight Loss with No Change in Diet
  • Lump in the Neck
  • Trouble Swallowing

It is important that a blood test and/or ultrasound be administered in order for your physician to make a clear and final decision about your thyroid. At Northwest ENT and Allergy Center we perform a Minimally Invasive Thyroid Surgery. With a small 30-40 minute procedure and a quick recovery time, this surgery is the most reasonable choice when it comes to thyroid disease.
