Thyroid Surgery Options

“Your doctor may recommend that you consider thyroid surgery for many reasons,” said Dr. John “Caleb” Simmons, ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat), at ARC South 1st Specialty in this recent podcast of the ARC Healthcare Minute. Dr. Simmons continued, saying, Those reason might include, “Cancer, cysts, if you have difficulty swallowing, if you have a visible mass, or if your thyroid is producing excess hormone.”

Dr. Simmons adds, “Depending on your diagnosis and symptoms, there may be nonsurgical options that could work for you.”

If you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Simmons to discuss thyroid surgery, you can do so online or by calling ARC South 1st Specialty at 512-443-1311.
