Thyroid anomalies from Surgical perspective

Thyroid anomalies encompass a wide range of conditions affecting the thyroid gland, necessitating various surgical interventions. Thyroidectomy, the surgical removal of the thyroid gland, is commonly performed for both benign and malignant thyroid nodules. In cases of large goiters causing compression of adjacent structures, subtotal or total thyroidectomy may be required. Papillary thyroid carcinoma is the most prevalent thyroid malignancy, often treated with surgical resection and subsequent radioactive iodine therapy. Follicular thyroid carcinoma may necessitate lobectomy or total thyroidectomy depending on tumor characteristics and risk factors. Medullary thyroid carcinoma often warrants total thyroidectomy due to its aggressive nature and potential for systemic involvement. Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is a highly aggressive tumor, typically requiring radical surgical excision and adjuvant therapies.
