The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the throat that controls the body’s heart rate, temperatures and metabolism. Tumors within the thyroid gland are somewhat common, but most are not cancerous. However, thyroid tumors may lead to an overactive or underactive thyroid, depending on the type, size and location of the lesion.
Thyroid can be tested with different types of examinations such as clinical evaluation, blood tests, imaging tests, biopsies, and other tests.
