Thyroid Surgery in Mount Pleasant, SC
Whether you have an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), a cancerous or noncancerous thyroid, a thyroidectomy can be a treatment option for you. A thyroidectomy is a thyroid surgery, which removes part or all of your thyroid gland. Depending on your condition, you will either undergo a partial or full removal of your thyroid. If you do receive a complete thyroid removal surgery, you will be given medication to take daily as a replacement for the hormone your thyroid would produce.
Before undergoing any thyroid surgery, a thyroid biopsy is needed to determine the cause of your thyroid issue. This can range from the more common overactive to thyroid, to the less frequent cancer of the thyroid.
