When is Thyroid Surgery Done?

Thyroid surgery is only performed when you have severe diseases related to the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland just above the collarbone in your neck. It’s responsible for producing hormones that regulate numerous bodily processes, such as how quickly you burn calories. You may need thyroid surgery if the thyroid gland is diseased or if the surgeon identifies cancerous cells. Thyroid disease can be serious if left untreated.
