The thyroid is a small butterfly shaped gland at the base of the neck. The thyroid can be hypoactive or hyperactive and can produce nodules. Most thyroid nodules are not serious and do not cause symptoms, but a small percentage of thyroid nodules are cancerous. We explore the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid nodules and cancer.
