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.

Northwest ENT is abiding closely by CDC guidelines in reference to the Coronavirus. Currently, we have taken precautionary steps to remain open. We are open for normal hours and available for your needs.

To help us protect you, other patients and our staff, if you have a fever, new shortness of breath, dry cough or feel sick, please call to reschedule your appointment. Northwest ENT & Allergy Center is now offering telemedicine appointments for all patients to help diagnose and treat you and your loved ones from the safety and convenience of your own home.

Thank you so much for understanding and cooperation. We look forward to continuing your care.
