Causes Of Swelling Of The Thyroid Gland?
Sorry, I want to ask you, I have swelling in the front of my neck, and they said I have hyperthyroidism, why is it swelling?
Hi Milasari.. Thank you for the questions given.
Enlargement in the neck area can be caused by an enlarged thyroid gland, enlarged fatty tissue, or enlarged lymph nodes. To be able to determine whether there is hyperthyroidism, a physical examination, ultrasound of the neck, examination of TSH, FT4, FT3 can be done. Clinical symptoms that appear include:
The presence of enlargement in the neck due to enlargement of the thyroid gland cells so that it can cause enlargement of the neck area
Heart beats faster
muscles feel weak
Sensitive to hot air
hard to concentrate
In women, the menstrual cycle becomes irregular
Treatment of hyperthyroidism itself must be done in the long term and regularly, and the doctor will routinely recommend checking thyroid hormone levels. If not given the right treatment, it can lead to heart rhythm disturbances, osteoporosis, and thyroid storm.
