Hello, thanks for the question.


Mumps or goitre is a disease caused by an enlarged thyroid gland found in the neck. Some things that can cause this enlargement include:

Iodine deficiency
Graves' disease, where the body's antibodies mistakenly attack the thyroid gland, so that this gland produces excessive thyroid hormone.
Hashimoto's disease, which is also an autoimmune disease in which the body experiences thyroid deficiency so that the pituitary gland produces thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) to stimulate the thyroid.
Multinodular goiter.
A single thyroid nodule, usually benign.
Thyroid cancer
Pregnancy The hormone produced during pregnancy, HCG, can cause thyroid enlargement.
Inflammation. Thyroiditis

The risk of this disease will increase in people with:

Iodine deficiency.
Female sex
Old age
Personal health history or family members with autoimmune diseases
Pregnancy and menopause.
Certain medications. Some medications, including immune system suppressants, antiretrovirals (ARVs), heart medications, and medications for mental illness can put you at risk of Mumps.
Radiation exposure

If you have an enlargement of the thyroid gland you should consult with your doctor about the enlargement, especially to disturb the patient's clinical condition and disturb the airway, it should be ascertained whether the enlargement is indeed due to enlargement of the thyroid gland and is toxic (causing hormonal disorders) or nontoxic (does not cause interference) hormones), or lumps like tumors or cancer. The doctor will conduct a question and answer, direct physical examination, and additional examinations such as blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, biopsy, and others. Handling depends on the conditions and causes of enlargement, in some cases it can shrink itself with or without drugs, but in some other cases the treatment requires surgical procedures. The surgical procedure performed depends on the condition of the disease, removed part or all of the thyroid gland. Risks that can arise due to this surgical procedure include infection, bleeding and pain, impaired voice innervation which causes hoarseness because the anatomical structure of the innervation is very close to the thyroid gland, the parathyroid gland is elevated during the surgical procedure that causes hypoparathyroid (disturbance of the body's calcium balance ). The risk of death on the operating table is generally very low because before the operation is usually carried out an examination of the feasibility of the operation first. Thyroid surgery in general has a high success rate and this will also depend on the expertise of the surgeon. If you are doubtful and unclear, you should consult the doctor who will operate on you, the doctor will explain in more detail about the reasons for surgery, the risks, and benefits of the procedure.


Thus, hopefully it helps.
