The molecular radiology team at the Theranostics Center at ARA diagnoses and treats two kinds of thyroid conditions: Hyperthyroidism and Thyroid Cancer.
- Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces too much hormone, causing symptoms such as nervousness, anxiety, rapid heartbeat, weight loss, insomnia, tremors, and more. Hyperthyroidism can be caused by several factors, such as Graves’ disease (an autoimmune disorder), toxic nodular goiter (enlarged thyroid with overactive nodules), or inflammation of the thyroid (thyroiditis).
- Thyroid Cancer is a condition in which abnormal cells grow and multiply in the thyroid gland. These cells can form a lump or nodule in the thyroid, and they can spread to nearby tissues and organs.
