Thyroid Disease and Cancer

Thyroid Disease and Cancer Banner

Thyroid and parathyroid disorders are conditions that may require an assessment and sometimes surgical intervention by a general surgeon. ARC general surgeons are specially trained to diagnose and manage various conditions, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer, benign tumors, thyroid nodules, and other thyroid diseases.

ARC board certified general surgeons can evaluate thyroid nodules with in-office ultrasound, discuss diagnostic options, perform an image-guided biopsy, and guide patients through the process of surgical intervention that may be needed in cases of pre-cancerous or cancerous lesions.

Although a large percentage of thyroid abnormalities do not require surgery, ARC general surgeons can assist primary care physicians and patients with the assessment and appropriate follow-up of thyroid and parathyroid abnormalities.
