Are Hypothyroid And Thyroid Cancer At Risk Of Being Passed Down To Children?
Hello, thank you for the question.
The thyroid gland is a gland located at the front of the neck that has many functions, one of which produces the hormone triiodotironin (T3) and thyroxine (T4) which play a role in the body's metabolism. Thyroid cancer is a condition where thyroid gland cell growth becomes abnormal. This disease is more common in people aged> 70 years and aged 35-39 years, where women are more often than men. People who have a family history of thyroid cancer will also be at risk of developing thyroid cancer because genetic disorders can be passed down to the next generation. However, people who have a family history of thyroid cancer will not necessarily suffer from thyroid cancer as well, because besides being influenced by genetic factors, it is also influenced by other factors, such as lifestyle. Therefore, if you have risk factors or already have symptoms that lead to thyroid cancer such as throat pain, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness or hoarseness, weight loss, and accompanied by symptoms of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism, you should consult a doctor. Handling will be adjusted to the conditions experienced. We recommend that you control for risk factors and do a healthy lifestyle, and do screening early before more severe complaints or symptoms arise.
so, hopefully it helps.
