Caring For Your Thyroid Health
Have you ever experienced difficulty swallowing or breathing? You may have risk factors including a family history of thyroid nodules or iodine deficiency. Thyroid nodules are abnormal lumps (growths) within the thyroid gland, a butterfly-shaped gland located below your voice box. Even if most thyroid nodules are benign, 10-15% of nodules are cancerous. Sometimes overgrowth of normal thyroid tissue can lead to hyperthyroidism. In other cases, multiple nodules can form in the thyroid called multinodular goiter. Fluid filled thyroid cysts can be one type of thyroid nodule within the thyroid. More complex nodules may lead to thyroid cancers.
Depending on the root cause and type of nodule you have, patients can monitor with regular ultrasound or even have a thyroid fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAC) if required. Surgery to remove partial or whole thyroid gland can be done but thanks to minimally invasive treatments such as Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), this procedure can treat noncancerous and cancerous thyroid lumps.
As a vascular and interventional radiology specialist based in Singapore, Dr. Manish Taneja looks after thyroid nodules offering minimally invasive treatments, especially thyroid nodule radiofrequency ablation. Dr. Manish Taneja also has extensive experience in performing all vascular interventions, non-vascular interventions and interventional oncology procedures.
One of the latest techniques for treating patients, RFA of thyroid nodules is a minimally invasive technique with a small special needle under ultrasound guidance. Heat energy is applied using this needle and the nodule gradually shrinks in size. Come in for a consultation with our vascular specialist, Dr. Manish Taneja for the convenience that RFA offers over other treatments.
