When is thyroid surgery done?

Thyroid surgery is a procedure to remove part or all of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland located in the neck. It produces hormones that regulate metabolism and energy levels in the body.

There are several reasons why a person might need thyroid surgery, including:

  1. Goiter: A goiter is an enlarged thyroid gland that may cause a visible bulge in the neck. Surgery may be necessary to remove the goiter if it is causing problems with breathing or swallowing, or if it is cancerous.
  2. Thyroid nodules: These are growths that form on the thyroid gland. Surgery may be necessary to remove a nodule if it is cancerous or if it is causing symptoms such as pain or difficulty swallowing.
  3. Thyroid cancer: If a person has thyroid cancer, surgery to remove part or all of the thyroid gland may be necessary.
  4. Hyperthyroidism: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove part or all of the thyroid gland to treat hyperthyroidism, which is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces too much hormone.

There are several types of thyroid surgery, including partial thyroidectomy (removal of part of the gland), total thyroidectomy (removal of the entire gland), and lobectomy (removal of one lobe of the gland). The type of surgery a person has will depend on their individual situation.

Thyroid surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours to complete. Most people are able to go home the same day as the surgery. It is common to have some pain, swelling, and bruising in the neck after the surgery, but these symptoms should improve over time.
