The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck and is the largest endocrine gland in the human body
The gland is one of the most important organs in the human endocrine system. Its role is key to basic metabolism, oxygen consumption, energy balance, heat production, and more.
According to endocrinologists, signs indicating problems with the thyroid gland are divided into two groups: external and internal.
As for the external, in this case the thyroid gland increases and even a goiter may appear.
In this case, the patient feels a sore throat, difficulty swallowing, feels constriction in a lying position. Usually such people don't wear clothes with a polo shirt or a high collar.
An "internal" manifestation of gland problems is a lack or excess of the TSH hormone. If there is a deficiency, weakness, apathy, hair falls out.
A person suffers from anxiety, he is constantly in a state of stress, his pulse is accelerated, his hands are shaking. In inflammatory conditions such as thyroiditis, the skin of the neck may become red.
It is very important to contact an endocrinologist in time to prescribe examinations and prescribe medications.
In addition, patients with a complaint of a lump in the throat can be divided into two groups: in some, this condition occurs as a result of neuropsychiatric disorders, while in others, the cause lies in diseases related to internal organs (somatics).
