A swelling in the neck due to an enlarged thyroid gland is called a goitre. Nodules are lumps in the thyroid gland. Most are harmless but you should arrange an appointment with your doctor as soon as you find a lump or swelling.
The main cause is unknown, but thyroid nodules and thyroid enlargement are more common in women than men and increase in frequency with age.
Women often develop thyroid enlargement during pregnancy.
If you have a nodule or swelling in your neck you should see your doctor with a minimum of delay. Most nodules and swellings are harmless, but it is always best to have them checked promptly in case they are among the few that are cancerous.
Performed more than 700 thyroid surgeries for benign swelling and thyroid cancer in paediatric and adult patient.
