Thyroid Tumor

If you feel a lump in the front of your neck, become hoarse or lose your voice or have difficulty swallowing for no apparent reason, contact the experts in Jefferson's Thyroid Treatment Program for diagnosis and treatment of thyroid tumors.

Our Program is the only one of its kind in the Philadelphia region, and our physicians offer a unique multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of certain thyroid disorders, including tumors. Treatment of suspicious thyroid growths usually requires you to see several different physicians individually and wait days or weeks before the physicians have all the information they need.

At Jefferson, our Thyroid Treatment Program's team of thyroid surgeons, nuclear medicine specialists, cytologists and researchers can often streamline this process. The usual anxiety created by an extended diagnostic period is reduced, and you have a head start on treatment.
