Number of thyroid patients are reportedly increasing in recent years. The doctors point out radiation exposure, iodine-poor, overwork and stress as some of the reasons that contribute to increasing number of thyroid patents. Common conditions of thyroid are athyria, thyroidism and thyroid tumor. Thyroid tumor in particular is commonly found in women 40s and 50s.
It is reported that nearly half of middle aged women suffer from thyroid tumor. Luckly, most of them turn out to be benign but some unlucky patients turn out to be malignant which could lead to thyroid cancer. For this reason, it is very important for middle aged women who find or feel a symptom of thyroid to pay a visit to the doctor earliest possible for check up.
Below are possible symptoms of thyroid: feeling of irritation, difficulty in swallowing, pain in the neck, hoarse voice and slight coughs. But many cases are also showing no symptoms so regular check-up is necessary. A tumor normally sized more than 2cm need a treatment but the doctor recommends less than 1cm also need a scrutiny as patients with less than 1cm tumor sometimes find malignant.
Thanks to advancement of medical technology, the cutting edge radio frequency ablation procedure is applied to treat thyroid tumors. The 1mm thin needle shape magnetic pole burns the tumor with 90 to 100°C high frequency heat and it leaves no scar and the patient quickly resumes everyday life. However, the surgery requires delicate touch and application of the doctor as around the tumor are located important organs such as airway, throat, carotid artery and jugular vein.
