Thyroid nodules are focal growths of thyroid cells that form a lump within the gland. The majority of these nodules are benign and not cancerous. Generally, these nodules do not affect the overall metabolic function of the gland.
As an ENT practice, we diagnose, evaluate and follow these nodules in patients who have them.
When medically indicated, we perform surgery for thyroid nodules, removing either a portion of the thyroid gland, or the entire gland. Patients being seen for thyroid nodules need to have an outside thyroid Ultrasound performed prior to their consultation.
