Thyroid Disorders

    Overview

    Thyroid disorders can range from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer. The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones. The effects of thyroid disorders can be managed with proper diagnosis and treatment.

    Thyroid Nodule Clinic 

    SIU Medicine is now offering multidisciplinary care for thyroid or parathyroid conditions. The thyroid gland releases hormones that help to regulate metabolism, growth and development of the human body. Specialists in the Department of Internal Medicine and the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery’s will offer care and treatments for this vital gland in the neck. For an appointment, call 217-545-8000.
