Thyroid diseases

Definition

Thyroid diseases are characterized by hyperfunction (hyperthyroidism), hypofunction (hypothyoidism) or inflammation (thyroiditis) of the thyroid gland or the presence of thyroid nodules, which can be benign or cancerous. All of these disorders can result in an enlarged thyroid gland that causes swelling of the neck, a so-called goiter.
