Thyroid nodule refers to any abnormal growth of thyroid cells within the thyroid gland. Although the vast majority of thyroid nodules are benign (non-cancerous), a small portion of thyroid nodules do contain thyroid cancer. Due to this possibility, all thyroid nodules should be evaluated to rule out cancer.
Fatigue, depression, hair loss, bone pain, osteoporosis, kidney stones, headaches, hypertension, and acid reflux disease are some of the select symptoms that can be caused by parathyroid disease. Screening by measuring the levels of serum calcium and Intact PTH can help diagnose this disease.
