Early detection of thyroid nodules is very important.
Detecting thyroid nodules, assessing the risk of their malignancy, and monitoring them is very important. Early detection of thyroid cancer enables an almost complete cure. At the Eskulap London clinic, ultrasound examination of the thyroid gland is performed by a radiologist. Thyroid disease is a common problem that affects most women. Thyroid cancer is one of the diseases that affects an increasing number of people every year. In Poland and the UK, still very few people use prophylactic thyroid screening.
Examination of the nodules for the early detection of thyroid neoplasms with subsequent biopsy and appropriate treatment can restore the patient’s chance of recovery. That is why it is worth using an ultrasound of the thyroid gland – unless your doctor recommends otherwise, you should check the changes in the thyroid gland at least every two years.
In the treatment of thyroid diseases, in addition to using ultrasound and regular visits to the endocrinologist, self-examination of the thyroid at home is not recommended. Skilful palpation can be performed by a doctor during consultation without posing any danger to the patient. Also, thanks to the actions to prevent thyroid disease, we can better understand the work of our thyroid gland, control its appearance and find changes more easily.
