• I have thyroid swelling in the neck… still my endocrinologist says that I don’t any treatment?

Yes, Mild increase in the size of the thyroid gland can happen due to various reasons, including natural events like puberty and pregnancy. Also in some cases, the same diseases causing thyroid hormone abnormality may cause only a slight increase in the gland size without any other ill effects. Unless the increase in size causes problems due to pressure effects on nearby structures like food-pipe or wind-pipe or is looking ugly, no treatment may be required. However we urge that you consult your doctor to ensure that nothing important is overlooked.

• I don’t have any swelling in the neck… still my endocrinologist says that I have a thyroid problem?

Yes. It is possible that your thyroid gland has normal size, yet it may not be producing hormones properly. If it produces less hormones it is called hypothyroidism, if more hormones are produced then the condition is called hyperthyroidism.

• Is thyroid gland essential for life?

Yes, Indeed. Thyroid hormone is required for the proper functioning of each and every cell of the body. Hence thyroid gland is essential for life. If the gland is removed for some reason, then it is absolutely essential to continue taking thyroid hormone pills for life. Very low levels of thyroid hormones in the body can lead to coma and if neglected death in extreme cases.
