Thyroid is a small butterfly shaped endocrine gland present in the front portion of our neck, just below the Larynx or Adam’s apple. The gland though small in size, hardly weighing 25 gm, plays a vital role in controlling and regulating body’s functioning and metabolism. Thyroid gland primarily secretes the Triiodothyroxine (T3), Thyroxine (T4) and Calcitonin hormones. These hormonal productions is regulated by Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) secreted by Pituitary gland and Thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) produced by Hypothalamus of Brain. There are many afflictions which can affect Thyroid gland chiefly among them being:
- Thyroiditis- inflammation of thyroid gland. It can be caused by an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis or after delivery (Post partal Thyroiditis). The inflammation is usually associated with Hypo or Hyper thyroidism and can be acute, sub acute or chronic in nature

- Thyroid Nodules – unusual overgrowths or bulges in the thyroid tissue are known as nodule. Generally these nodules are small and benign in nature with many patients remaining asymptomatic.
