Neck/Thyroid Ultrasound

What is a Neck/Thyroid Ultrasound?

The thyroid gland is located in front of the neck above your clavicle (collar) bones. If your physician has identified lumps in your thyroid or neck during a routine physical, you are not alone. Up to 70 percent of adults have these lumps, also called nodules. In most instances, these nodules are benign and pose no health risk. A Neck/Thyroid Ultrasound allows for the evaluation of the thyroid and parathyroid glands and other soft tissues in the neck to determine the cause of the lump or if further testing and possibly a biopsy is required. Even if the nodules are determined to be non-cancerous, your physician may recommend regular Neck/Thyroid Ultrasounds to monitor any changes in their size or shape.
