Parathyroidectomy

Parathyroidectomy is removal of one or more of the 4 parathyroid glands that reside on the back of the thyroid.

Parotidectomy

The parotid gland is the largest of the salivary glands, all of which produce saliva to help lubricate the oral cavity during meals.

Excision of the Submandibular Gland

The submandibular glands are two salivary glands that reside underneath the tongue and just below the border of the jaw.

Excision of Congenital Neck Masses

The two most common congenital neck masses are thyroglossal duct cysts and branchial cleft cysts. Although these masses are present from birth, they can become a problem any time from early childhood to well into adulthood.

Thyroid swelling

Thyroid nodules are solid or fluid-filled lumps that form within your thyroid, a small gland located at the base of your neck, just above your breastbone.

Most thyroid nodules aren't serious and don't cause symptoms. Only a small percentage of thyroid nodules are cancerous.


Thyroid swelling

You often won't know you have a thyroid nodule until your doctor discovers it during a routine medical exam. Or your doctor may uncover it during a scan that was done for another health reason. Some thyroid nodules, however, may become large enough to be visible or make it difficult to swallow or breathe

Symptoms

Most thyroid nodules don't cause signs or symptoms. But occasionally some nodules become so large that they can:

  • Be felt
  • Be seen, often as a swelling at the base of your neck
  • Press on your windpipe or esophagus, causing shortness of breath or difficulty swallowing

In some cases, thyroid nodules produce additional thyroxine, a hormone secreted by your thyroid gland. The extra thyroxine can cause symptoms of an overproduction of thyroid hormones (hyperthyroidism), such as:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Increased sweating
  • Tremor
  • Nervousness
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat

Causes

Several conditions can cause nodules to develop in your thyroid gland, including:

  • Overgrowth of normal thyroid tissue.
  • Thyroid cyst
  • Chronic inflammation of the thyroid.
  • Multinodular goiter.
  • Thyroid cancer.
  • Iodine deficiency.

Complications

Complications associated with some thyroid nodules include:

  • Problems swallowing or breathing.
  • Hyperthyroidism.
  • Problems related to thyroid nodule surgery.

Diagnosis

  • Physical exam.
  • Thyroid function tests.
  • Ultrasound.
  • Fine-needle aspiration biopsy.
  • Thyroid scan.

Treatment

Treatment depends on the type of thyroid nodule you have.

Treating benign nodules

  • Watchful waiting.
  • Thyroid hormone therapy.
  • Surgery.
