Thyroid disorders are one of the most common metabolic disorders, commonly occurring more among women than in men. A thyroid disorder can range from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) not requiring any treatment, to life-threatening disease like cancer.
The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones, either excessive production (overactive thyroid disease or hyperthyroidism), too little (underactive thyroid disease or hypothyroidism) thyroid hormone, thyroid nodules, and/or goiter (thyroid enlargement).
Enlargement of thyroid can be due to hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism but also with benign and malignant (cancerous) nodules.
