Dr. Michael Starks, General Surgeon here at St. Joe’s General Surgery, provides a great, informative and short video on what to do if you find a lump on your thyroid.
We need to get these lumps checked because it could be hyperthyroidism [over active thyroid gland] or it might be thyroid cancer.
As Dr. Starks will explain in the video there are a few simple steps to follow to have this checked that your provider will assist with. First a straight forward blood test, then maybe a fine needle aspiration with ultra sound guidance.
