One common illness often seen by ENT physicians is thyroid diseases, including Graves’ disease, along with it's accompanying complications.
Symptoms of Graves’ disease can include: protrusion of the eyeballs, goiter, fast heart rate, high blood pressure, difficulty sleeping, weight loss, and nervousness. In some cases, the goiter becomes so large that it begins to cause compression on the esophagus and trachea causing problems with swallowing or shortness of breath. A visit to an ENT will help pinpoint the source of the problem and inform the treatment.
