The thyroid is one of the most powerful endocrine organs. It’s butterfly shaped structure weighs about 10-20 grams which is equivalent to the size of 2-4 quarters. It is located in the neck and borders the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM). The thyroid
gland is made up of 2 lobes (right and left) and the middle of the gland is known as isthmus. Did you know that a normal thyroid gland should not be palpable to touch? Ultrasound imaging is used to get more accurate measurements on the size of the gland.
