Thyroid is a gland that has got a butterfly shape and is located at the front of a person’s neck. It contains two lobes that are connected by a isthmus – a sort of a bridge and when it is in order, healthy and normal, it is invisible to an eye and a person doesn’t feel it.
Thyroid produces hormones and is in charge of a body metabolism. There are various types of thyroid disorders starting from small goiter, when a thyroid gland is simply enlarged, to serious thyroid problems when one or both lobes must be surgically removed.
