Large Thyroid Nodules: What To Look For
The health of your thyroid is important because the hormones it produces control functions like body temperature, digestion, and the heart. When the thyroid is not functioning as it should, as in the case of large thyroid nodules, your health could be at risk. Nodules are unusual growths of thyroid cells within the gland, and knowing what to look for will go a long way toward getting the medical attention you need.
Thyroid nodules don’t always produce symptoms unless you have several or they are large enough to see. In some cases, large thyroid nodules can press against other structures in the neck and cause issues. If you experience any of the following symptoms, contact us right away:
- Trouble Swallowing or Breathing
- Hoarseness or Voice Change
- Pain in the Neck
- Enlargement of the Thyroid Gland – also known as a Goiter
Hyper & Hypothyroidism
Large thyroid nodules can drastically affect the gland’s function, with the most common being hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is the overproduction of hormones and is known to cause weight loss, irritability, and heat sensitivity. Hypothyroidism is the reduction of the hormone, resulting in possible fatigue, weight gain, and depression. Schedule an appointment if you suspect you’re suffering from either of these conditions.
