Thyroid disorders are conditions that affect the thyroid gland, a butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck. The thyroid has important roles to regulate numerous metabolic processes throughout the body. Thyroid cancer occurs in the cells of the thyroid. Although thyroid cancer isn't common in the United States, rates seem to be increasing. Join Dr. Richard Carano for a discussion on thyroid disorders and thyroid cancer.
