Thyroid It shows many pathological symptoms and here we mention the reasons why surgery is the only solution for the treatment of the gland. Hypersensitivity affected the gland, which was confirmed by Dr. Alaa El-Din Hussain, Professor of General Surgery. Oncology at the National Cancer Institute.
Professor of Oncology Surgery Al-Youm continued his speech to Al-Sabeya, explaining that when treating hyperthyroidism, this treatment may fail to suppress this hyperactivity and the inability to control the hyperactivity, which may require surgery later. In a patient with hyperthyroidism.
Dr. During his speech, Alaa El-Din said that cases of tumors in the thyroid gland are also one of the most important and inevitable reasons for surgery on the gland, because there is no alternative treatment for it, so it is removed. A tumor – whatever its type – is the only solution to treat and control the problem, regardless of whether the culprit is benign or malignant.
Neglecting surgery in cases requiring surgery leads to the severity of the problem, in the case of benign tumors, they increase in size and put pressure on the neck, speech nerves, larynx and trachea. Difficulty breathing, changes in voice and speech, difficulty swallowing, and the tumor may move into the chest cavity. This puts pressure on the lungs, but in a malignant tumor, it can spread to the lymph nodes, lungs, and neck, slowing healing. Then it makes surgery difficult.
