Abnormal Cells Growing In Thyroid Gland
The thyroid gland is a very important part of the body. It's in the front of the neck. It makes thyroid hormones, calcitonin, immune system cells, and supportive cells. It also regulates heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and the rate at which food is converted to energy. So when the thyroid is affected by cancer (the growth of abnormal cells forming a tumor) it affects your metabolism and it can't make the cells and hormones properly. If the cancer gets really bad it could spread to your lungs. The heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature levels could fluctuate. Some symptoms could be a lump/swelling in the neck, pain in neck and ears, voice changes, trouble swallowing and breathing, and coughing and wheezing.
