Hyperthyroidism is a metabolic disorder in which the thyroid gland hormones excreted excessively. The most common symptoms of hyperthyroidism are Hyperthyroidism is a metabolic disorder in which the thyroid gland hormones excreted excessively. The most common symptoms of hyperthyroidism are a global increased metabolism, increased heart rate, arrhythmias, insomnia, irritability, nervousness, heat intolerance, weight loss, tremors, tachycardia and, sometimes, a protrusion of the eyeballs. Moreover, hypothyroidism is decreased production of thyroid hormones that, depending on when it occurs, can affect to a greater or lesser extent to the development of vital organs. Idiopathic primary hypothyroidism occurs due to thyroid antibodies, or other cause autoimmune disorders (autoimmune hypothyroidism). Hypothyroidism symptoms of muscle fatigue, shortness of breath or pain in the thyroid area, hair loss, dry skin and rough and progressive deterioration of intellectual activity. Due to the difference between hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism drug treatment it will also be different and adapted to each patient. ...

Suffers a very small percentage of the population and their causes can be congenital, environmental, removal of the thyroid gland or treatment with various drugs such as iodine or lithium. For hypothyroidism in children, caused by congenital causes, it is often done to babies clinic (heel prick) test. On the other hand, because during early pregnancy, expectant mothers require an unusual effort on your thyroid gland, one of the risks encountered is hypothyroidism during pregnancy, to be monitored especially for the successful development the fetus and the health of the mother. Idiopathic primary hypothyroidism occurs due to thyroid antibodies, or other cause autoimmune disorders (autoimmune hypothyroidism). Usually have symptoms of muscle fatigue, shortness of breath or pain in the thyroid area, hair loss, dry skin and rough and progressive deterioration of intellectual activity. ...
Goiter, or thyroid goiter is an enlarged thyroid gland that is characterized by the appearance of a bulge in the anterior neck that often push the tr Goiter, or thyroid goiter is an enlarged thyroid gland that is characterized by the appearance of a bulge in the anterior neck that often push the trachea, which leads to difficulty in breathing and swallowing, and can even cause hoarseness. It is often caused by a disruption of hormones gland, cysts or a diet low in iodine. According to the characteristics of goiter it can be classified as diffuse goiter, characterized by a steady increase in the gland; nodular goiter or multinodular goitre, which is the development of one or more nodes due to enlargement of the thyroid. Besides, goiter may be accompanied by hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism associated with symptoms such as nervousness, weight loss, cold intolerance, dry skin, among others. If goiter with hypothyroidism usually pharmacological treatment to shrink occurs. If that occurs with hyperthyroidism, can be removed by surgery, radioiodine or treated with drugs. ...

Through a medical test can diagnose whether the gland has incr Thyroid cancer is the abnormal growth of cells of the thyroid gland to produce a tumor. Through a medical test can diagnose whether the gland has increased in size, and if there is a cancerous nodule or more. For the identification of cancer varied tests by puncture biopsy of thyroid nodules or ultrasound are usually carried as blood tests. Treatment depends on the extent of the tumor in each patient. In most cases you opt for surgical removal of nodules, but other treatments include the application of high-dose thyroid hormones or surgical removal of the nodules. In thyroid cancer symptoms can be mainly swelling or tumor in the neck, hoarseness and coughing, voice changes, difficulty swallowing, and so on. ...
The thyroid nodule is a growth of abnormal cells in the thyroid gland, which are usually identified by lumps in the neck area. These thyroid nodules are benign in most cases (9 of 10), but sometimes may be carcinogenic. If the nodule becomes filled with fluid or blood, it is known as thyroid cyst. These nodules, which in most cases does not usually give any symptoms, can produce discomfort in swallowing, breathing or cause hoarseness. In addition, they may be accompanied by hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, and are produced by a production of unnecessary hormones for the body, a deficiency of iodine in the diet or genetic factors. Treatment will depend on whether the thyroid nodules are benign or cancerous. In the latter case, the different treatments ranging from the application of high-dose thyroid hormones or surgical removal of nodules. ...
Thyroiditis is inflammation of the thyroid, which can cause malfunction of the gland resulting in hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. It is usually associated with other disorders caused by a weak immune system. There are different types of thyroiditis as the cause that causes: chronic thyroiditis or acute thyroiditis. Hashimoto's thyroiditis, known as chronic thyroiditis, is an autoimmune origin and can cause hypothyroidism, with symptoms such as pain in the thyroid and difficulty swallowing.

Gallbladder surgery the surgical procedure is performed to remove the gallbladder, an organ located in the bottom serving liver and bile reserve. Removal is indicated when the patient has pain or symptoms caused by the formation of calculi (stones) in the gallbladder. Gallbladder operation can be minimally invasive or open. In the first case, the surgeon will make three or four incisions in the abdomen and one of the holes, insert a laparoscope (a thin, lighted tube connected to a camera that allows the inside of the cavity) and other instruments for the procedure. Then also gas with a needle inserted to expand the abdomen and cut the bile duct and blood vessels that lead to the gallbladder. Finally, it will remove the organ. When the disease is more severe or there are complications during gallbladder surgery, it performed an open operation. This involves making a small cut in the abdomen to open it and remove the gallbladder through the incision. ...
A hernia is the outward displacement of an organ or tissue of the cavity is normally housed. The patient notices a lump on the part of the body where it develops. The causes can be diverse, being congenital, acquired (obesity, constipation, physical exertion) or traumatic (for any impact or blow). The type of hernia depends on its location: femoral (upper thigh), more common in women; hiatal (upper part of the stomach); surgical or hernia (a poorly closed scar); umbilical (around the navel), which usually occurs when not heal well after birth; and inguinal (groin), more common in men. ...
An inguinal hernia occurs when a portion of an abdominal organ (typically the intestine) goes through a hole in a weak zone that contains the wall and form a bulge under the skin at the groin area. The inguinal hernia can be direct, manifested in the anterior abdominal wall, with oval appearance reducible, or indirectly, often reach the scrotum. The most obvious symptom is a swelling in the groin, which can cause pain, increasing with the effort, but it can also happen that the patient does not present any bulk and only discomfort in the area walking or make efforts. The danger of inguinal hernia occurs when the intestine is strangled by the hole and blood circulation (strangulated hernia) is cut, which can cause a tear in the body and cause peritonitis (inflammation of the membrane lining the wall abdomen and abdominal organs). The prescribed treatment is an inguinal hernia operation, which involves the reintroduction into the abdomen and externalized part in reinforcing the wall that contains it with their own fabrics, mesh or prosthesis. Surgery may be open in the groin or minimally invasive in the abdomen by laparoscopy. ...
Laparoscopy is a surgical technique inspection of the abdominal cavity that does not require large incisions. During the laparoscopic surgical procedure, the abdomen is introduced into a laparoscope, which is a tube containing an optical system coupled to a light source. The camera allows the doctor to inspect, from a monitor, the pelvic organs and, if necessary, introduce other instruments through the same laparoscope to correct any problems. The benefits of laparoscopic surgery are numerous, so it is applied in various fields. In urology shorter hospital stay and recovery is required, there is less chance of infectious complications, decreases postoperative pain and no visible scarring. In gynecology it is used for inspection of certain diseases or gynecological processes: cysts, fibroids, hysterectomy, pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, etc. Moreover, laparoscopy is used in other medical specialties and processes such as prostate cancer, the varicele or some kidney diseases. ...
The major salivary glands, which generate and empty saliva into the mouth, are three pairs: the submandibular gland, sublingual salivary glands and the parotid glands. Surgery of the parotid gland, also known as parotidectomy, is the operation that handles remove tumors that grow in the gland. It is estimated that over 70% of these tumors are benign (noncancerous) but we must consider any package that is detected. Depending on the type of tumor it is, its size and location, different variants of this intervention practiced. The most common are superficial parotidectomy or total parotidectomy, with conservation of the facial nerve, which also involves a lymph node dissection. The salivary glands may also have other diseases, the most common are: sialolithiasis, which is blockage of the salivary glands by the presence of calcium stones that do not allow the output of saliva and cause inflammation of the gland salivary affected; and sialadenitis, that is infection of the salivary glands, which can be an effect of sialolithiasis, or be caused by a virus or bacteria. ...
The thyroid is an endocrine gland that produces hormones. These control the rate at which the body burns calories or heartbeat. The thyroid gland may suffer various diseases: The thyroid is enlarged Hyperthyroidism: When the gland produces more thyroid hormone than necessary Hypothyroidism occurs when not enough hormone Thyroid cancer Thyroid nodules: lumps in the gland Thyroiditis: swelling of the gland ...
Thyroid surgery includes removal of nodules or the partial or total removal of the thyroid gland. Thyroid surgery is performed in response to different causes: biopsies when it comes to evaluating thyroid nodules; pressure by nodules or goiters in adjacent structures which complicate and cause discomfort in swallowing and breathing; for thyroid cancer; or the possibility that the gland or goiter nodule or become cancerous. In thyroid surgery complete removal of the gland in cases where benign nodules and goiters are becoming large or are causing discomfort while partial removal is done in the case of the presence of nodules or hyperactive unilateral recommended. For cases of papillary or follicular cancer total removal that could even lead to the lymph nodes in large tumors it is recommended. Also, for some cases, medical advances now allow this operation by laparoscopic surgery. ...
