Thyroid Disorders

Thyroid Disorders

Your thyroid produces hormones to help control your metabolism and bodily functions. Thyroid disorders can cause the thyroid to produce too many or too few hormones. This can lead to wide-ranging symptoms, including tiredness, difficulty concentrating, and irritability. At New York Sinus & Thyroid Surgery Center, Dr. Edward Shin can treat thyroid-related conditions. Our thyroid doctor can surgically remove benign growths like thyroid nodules while also treating multinodular goiters and hyperthyroidism.

Thyroid Disorders

Multinodular Goiter

A multinodular goiter refers to the enlargement of the thyroid gland, along with the presence of small nodules or lumps. Multinodular goiters are cosmetic deformities of the thyroid. Many multinodular goiters are small and do not display any symptoms. Larger goiters can cause complications speaking, swallowing, and breathing. These conditions require a professional diagnosis to determine the proper course of treatment. Dr. Edward Shin is a top thyroid doctor in NYC who can treat multinodular goiters.

Multinodular Goiter

Thyroid Nodules

Thyroid nodules are lumps that form within the thyroid gland. Smaller nodules are usually asymptomatic, while larger growths can lead to difficulty talking or swallowing. Although many thyroid nodules are harmless and do not require treatment, these lumps should be examined by a thyroid doctor to determine if they are cancerous or benign. Treatments include surgical removal and radioactive iodine.

Thyroid Nodules

Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid cancers are often slow-growing and difficult to detect unless diagnosed by a trained thyroid doctor. While some forms of thyroid cancer do not display symptoms in their early stages, other cases present themselves as tiny lumps around the neck or swollen lymph nodes. There are multiple forms of thyroid cancer: papillary thyroid cancer, follicular thyroid cancer, medullary thyroid cancer, anaplastic thyroid cancer, thyroid lymphoma, and Hurthle cell carcinoma. Our NYC thyroid doctor specializes in thyroid cancer surgery.

Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid Cancer

Papillary Thyroid Cancer

The most common form of thyroid cancer is papillary thyroid cancer. This form of cancer is very curable if treated early and appropriately. Suspicious lumps or nodules around the neck may be a sign of papillary cancer. Papillary cancer surgery often involves removal of the thyroid gland and any affected lymph nodes. For patients who have advanced cases that have spread to surrounding structures, radioiodine may be the best treatment.

Papillary Thyroid Cancer

Follicular Thyroid Cancer

Follicular cancer is the 2nd most common cancer of the thyroid. Follicular thyroid cancer is a slow-growing and more aggressive condition than papillary cancer, but can still be appropriately treated. Early detection of follicular thyroid cancer is vital to treating this disease. Surgical removal and radioactive iodine are some common techniques to treat follicular thyroid cancer. Our thyroid doctor can discuss your available surgery options during a consultation at our NYC office.

Follicular Thyroid Cancer

Medullary Thyroid Cancer

Medullary thyroid cancer is a less common form of cancer that develops in the C cells of the thyroid gland. Medullary cancer is a more aggressive form than papillary or follicular thyroid cancer. If caught early, medullary cancer can be cured and managed through comprehensive treatments and surgery. Our thyroid doctor can discuss your surgical options in more detail.

Medullary Thyroid Cancer

Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer

Anaplastic thyroid cancer is a rare form of cancer that can quickly metastasize and spread if not properly treated. Anaplastic cancer is considered the most aggressive of thyroid cancers. This cancer often presents itself as a nodule or lump in the neck. Patients may also experience difficulty breathing or swallowing, as well as hoarseness. Anaplastic thyroid cancer treatment requires a comprehensive approach.

Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid Lymphoma

Thyroid lymphoma is a very rare cancer that affects the lymphocytes in the thyroid. Thyroid lymphomas grow very quickly and can compress local structures, causing noticeable symptoms like difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath, and visible masses around the neck. Early detection and timely treatment can cure and manage thyroid lymphoma.

Thyroid Lymphoma

Hurthle Cell Carcinoma

Among the rarest of thyroid cancers is Hurthle cell carcinoma. This cancer is an aggressive type of follicular cancer. Hurthle cell carcinoma occurs when the thyroid’s Hurthle cells grow and divide uncontrollably, leading to the formation of cancerous growths that can spread to other parts of the body. Hurthle cell carcinoma can be treated if diagnosed early. Possible indicators of Hurthle cell cancer include lumps found around the neck or throat, discomfort while swallowing, and hoarse voice.

Hurthle Cell Carcinoma

Parathyroid Surgery & Treatments

Parathyroid Surgery & Treatments

Dr. Edward Shin offers parathyroid treatment to address numerous parathyroid conditions, including hyperparathyroidism and parathyroid cancer. These conditions can be addressed and managed using surgery, medications, supplements, and monitoring. Parathyroid surgery is typically recommended to remove the affected parathyroid glands and treat underlying symptoms.

Parathyroid Surgery & Treatments

Parathyroid Disorders

Your parathyroid glands release parathyroid hormones to help control calcium levels throughout your body. Parathyroid disorders can cause your parathyroid glands to produce too many or too few parathyroid hormones, resulting in high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, bone or joint pain, and anxiety. These symptoms are often overlooked and many patients do not realize they have a parathyroid disorder unless evaluated by a professional thyroid doctor.

Parathyroid Disorders

Parathyroid Cancer

Parathyroid cancer affects the 4 parathyroid glands. This rare form of cancer can grow and spread to other parts of the body if left untreated. Common symptoms of parathyroid cancer include chronic weakness and muscle fatigue, loss of appetite, weight fluctuations, and frequent urination. Treatment for parathyroid cancer will vary from patient to patient. Surgical removal of the cancerous tissue and radiation therapy are potential treatment options.
