Goiter and Thyroid Surgeries

Goiter Treatments, Thyroid Surgeries with Comprehensive Examination and Tests

Goiter disease can be defined as the enlargement of the thyroid glands and manifests itself with some insidious complaints such as swallowing, breathing difficulties and chronic cough.  This picture, which may feel like something is stuck in the throat in some patients, can sometimes cause a feeling of tightening in the throat of the patients, even if the thyroid gland has not grown excessively.

Goiter is usually detected during routine examinations.

Goiter can be treated with different treatment methods.  After the definitive diagnosis is made in the light of comprehensive examination and tests, treatment methods are determined depending on the cause and degree of the disease.  For this reason, it is very important to make the correct diagnosis before goiter surgeries.

In Which Situations Are Thyroid Surgery Performed?

The surgical removal of the thyroid gland, which is performed to eliminate the structural or functional disorders of some goiter diseases, is called "Goiter Surgery".  At this stage, in the title of When Goiter is Operated;

  • When cancer is detected as a result of biopsy,
  • In case of detection of suspicious cells in terms of cancer risk,
  • The patient's breathing problems as a result of enlarged thyroid glands that put pressure on the neck
  • In swallowing problems experienced while talking or eating due to enlarged thyroid glands
  • In patients without treatment success after long-term drug use (uncontrolled hyperthyroidism in drug and nuclear medicine treatments)
  • Patients at risk of cancer despite the small size of the nodules
  • In the presence of benign nodules, known as toxic adenomas, where the thyroid hormone is secreted excessively
  • In patients where the size of the thyroid gland creates aesthetic problems

Effective and permanent treatment is obtained in all patients after thyroid surgery.  Another point to be considered is;  After the removal of the thyroid gland, patients should use one tablet of medicine every day for life.

Hoarseness or changes in voice quality, which are likely to be experienced after thyroid surgery, may cause patients to be afraid of surgery and refuse to have surgery.  The risk of hoarseness is eliminated by using special nerve finder devices in surgeries performed by experienced surgeons.
