Thyroid Disorders And Treatments

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the lower front of the neck in front of the windpipe below Adam's apple. The gland secretes several hormones that collectively influence the body's metabolism, temperature, growth, and development. Currently, it is estimated that around 42 million people in India suffers from thyroid disorders, which predominantly include women.

Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is overactive and produces too much of the hormone. The noticeable symptoms of the condition are irritability, fatigue, increased heartbeat, sweating, and weight loss. Graves' disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism. It is a disease condition in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the thyroid gland.


Hypothyroidism is the opposite of hyperthyroidism. It is a condition in which the thyroid does not make enough hormones. Too little production of thyroid hormones leads to symptoms like fatigue, constipation, depression, slow heartbeat,and weight gain. Hypothyroidism is often caused by Hashimoto's disease. 


A goiter is an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland in the neck or upper chest. The most common cause of goiter is iodine deficiency in the diet. The symptoms of the goiter are usually not seen until it’s severe. The severe goiter symptoms include swelling in the neck, difficulty in breathing and swallowing, and hoarseness of the voice. 


Thyroid nodules are any abnormal growth that forms a lump on the thyroid gland. They can occur in any part of the gland and can be felt easily if compared to other disorders. The causes of the nodules aren't always known but can include iodine deficiency. The symptoms of the thyroid nodules are similar to hyperthyroidism as they produce high levels of hormones. 


Thyroid cancer is a condition characterized by the formation of cancer cells from the tissues of the gland. Thyroid cancer has a few noticeable symptoms including a lump in the neck, difficulty swallowing, swollen glands, and hoarse voice.

The above disorders can be effectively diagnosed and treated through consultation with the help of an experienced doctor. Usually, the doctor takes into consideration the noticeable signs, symptoms, and more critically, the blood tests in diagnosing the disease. The common thyroid blood tests suggested by the doctor include T3, T4, TSH, and thyroid antibodies testing. The doctor might suggest treatment options like surgery and medication based on the type of disorder.

New Advances in Thyroid Surgery

The medical field has witnessed rapid progress due to the advancements in science and technology. Highly advanced machine and surgical equipment have been introduced to deliver better treatment and care to the people with fewer side effects. The improvements in surgical techniques have enabled medical practitioners to conduct minimally-invasive surgeries. One such recent development in thyroid surgery is Trans-axillary thyroid surgery.

Thyroid gland is a small butterfly-shaped gland in the neck that produces thyroid hormones. Trans-axillary thyroid surgery is a surgical procedure in which the incision is made in the underarm area. This surgery is mainly done to operate small thyroid growths and it cannot be used to remove larger growths. Though the conventional method of surgery is favored, many patients were dissatisfied with the exposure of neck scar. But now, with the introduction of Trans Axillary method scars in the neck can be avoided.

Advantages of Trans Axillary method in thyroid surgery.

Trans Axillary thyroid surgery is a safe and effective method with an aesthetic approach. The main aim of the surgery is to avoid an incision in the neck. In conventional thyroid surgery, the incision in the neck can be clearly seen and sometimes keloid scars may develop and worsen, especially in dark-skinned people. 

In the Trans Axillary method, the surgery is done accessing the axilla or underarm to avoid the neck or chest wall incision. The scar occurred due to the surgery is hidden and remains under clothes. For the easy accessibility of thyroid gland, an incision of around four to five centimeters is made through the axilla (armpit). 

Patients who go through Trans Axillary thyroid surgery may experience less soreness and discomfort ability around the incision site. The time of recovery is faster when compared to traditional thyroid surgery.

The patients with trans axillary surgery experience less pain with increased cosmetic satisfaction, and with lower chances of postoperative voice change, paraesthesia and swallowing discomfort.

Who is the right candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Ever heard about the word nose job? Rhinoplasty is the medical term used for a nose job. There are many people who are not born with a sharp straight nose. The structure of your nose says a lot about your looks. Rhinoplasty is a procedure in which the shape and size of your nose are reconstructed and rectified for enhancing the look of your nose. There is one more aspect of the surgery. Often a deviated or de-shaped nose structure can lead to breathing problem which finally leads to loud snoring at night. Rhinoplasty is also a great solution to reduce snoring.

Now the question is how are the eligible candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Best Candidate for Rhinoplasty

  • If one is unhappy or self-conscious about the current nose structure, one should go for Rhinoplasty.
  • If there is an inborn deformity of the nose, Rhinoplasty is for them. 
  • People who have crossed the age of mid-teens can go for this nose job. Before one reaches mid-teen, the nose keeps on growing and change shape. So one should definitely wait till that period.
  • If one is suffering from loud snoring and breathing problem, maybe the shape of the nose is blocking the air flow. Rhinoplasty will be the perfect solution for those candidates since the surgery can reshape the nose and the blockage can be cleared.

One important factor is that people who are aware of any allergies or previous medical conditions should share the details with the surgeon since it reduces the risk of reaction to any medications or anaesthesia.

The aim of Rhinoplasty

The basic aim of a Rhinoplasty surgery is:

  • Changing the size and angle of the nose.
  • Straightening the bridge of the nose to provide a sharp look.
  • Reshaping the tip of the nose.
  • Also narrowing the nostrils.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and its Lesser Twin-Snoring

Snoring is more than just a frustrating habit that makes your sleeping partners uncomfortable. This can also be an indication of something worse. Here are some essential facts you need to know about snoring and its association with sleep apnea.

Sleep apnea is a disorder which is characterized by abnormally shallow breathing (hypopneas) or abnormal pauses in breathing (apneas) during sleep. These apneas can occur due to a physical blockage to airflow or a lack of respiratory effort, or a combination of both.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) – OSA happens when the airway is blocked, the patient’s tongue falls back against the soft palate, and the soft palate and uvula fall back against the back of the throat, effectively closing the airway and causing pauses in breathing and subsequently loud snoring. Patients suffering from OSA often feel exhausted during the day and report daytime drowsiness, which they often become used to. OSA can also affect the work performance, attention, enthusiasm and also have other cognitive or behavioral effects.

Snoring:  Snoring is due to relaxation in soft tissues (when breathing) around the back of the throat which causes the narrowing of the upper respiratory structures while sleeping. Meanwhile, anything that narrows the breathing passages can also cause snoring, which includes: Enlarged uvula, medically known as the Palatine uvula (fleshy piece of tissue that hangs down in the back of your throat), deviated septum (when the thin wall between your nostrils is misaligned), an elongated soft palate, obstructions in the nasal area and larger tonsils.

If you suffer from daytime fatigue and sleepiness, and/ or if you don't feel refreshed in the morning after a night's sleep, you should, perhaps, consider getting a sleep study. There are a few ways that you can get that done. The usual method is to go to a sleep study clinic (or a clinic which specializes in snoring and sleep apnea), where you will be connected to a variety of devices that will monitor your body functions while you are sleeping. These include brain activity, eye movements, heart rhythm, oxygen saturation, and muscle activity. Another option is you can get a home testing device, which will also monitor your certain sleep functions, but in the comfort of your own home and bed.

Symptoms of sleep apnea

  • Loud and chronic snoring almost every night
  • Snorting, Choking or gasping during sleep
  • Pauses in breathing
  • A sore throat or feeling dehydrated when waking up
  • Night sweats, waking up at night feeling short of breath, Insomnia, restless or fitful sleep
  • Daytime drowsiness and exhaustion, irrespective of the time you spend in bed
  • Absent-mindedness and difficulty concentrating
  • Going to the restroom frequently during the night
  • Morning headaches
  • Uncharacteristic grumpiness, petulance, or depression
  • Sexual dysfunction
So, how can you say if you have sleep apnea or just fall into the group of “simple snorers?”
Understanding your conditions and symptoms is the first and most elementary step in finding a remedy. The obvious way is to examine how you feel during the daytime. Simple snoring doesn’t hamper the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea does, so you’re less likely to suffer from sleepiness, mood swings and extreme fatigue during the day. The main risk related to sleep apnea is going undiagnosed. When a sleeper experiences no snoring, but still has sleep apnea, the risk increases radically. Sleep apnea is a serious disorder, so you should contact a doctor right away if you or your partner notices the symptoms. Your doctor’s diagnosis of sleep apnea may involve seeing a professional sleep specialist and tests that can be done in a clinic or at home.


Non – Invasive method

Continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP): This small device uses mild air pressure to keep airways of a person with sleep apnoea to open continuously to breathe more easily during sleep. This is a portable device and is fitted on the nose when needed.

Conservative Methods

Uvulectomy: This is performed on patients with a large uvula that causes loud snoring. The procedure involves complete or partial incising the uvula and/or inferior rim of the soft palate, thereby reducing its size.
Septoplasty, Somnoplasty and functional Rhinoplasty: These surgical procedures will be performed when Snoring is a result of nasal obstruction and depending on the severity.

Adenotonsillectomy: This is the removal of the tonsils and adenoids which is commonly performed in children with the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

Palatal implants: A single-stage office procedure (a form of oropharyngeal surgery) involving the placement of three polyester implants in the soft palate under local anesthesia to help reduce vibration that causes snoring.

Surgical procedures

Palatal surgery: Also called as Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP), this is a procedure used to remove excess tissue in the throat to broaden the airway.

Genioglossal advancement surgery: Genioglossus is the largest muscle of the tongue responsible for protruding the tongue. Genioglossus advancement captures this area of bony attachment and permanently repositions it. The procedure creates more room for the tongue to relax during sleep without obstructing the passages resulting in an enlargement and stabilization of the airway.

Thyrohyoid suspension procedure: This involves advancing the hyoid bone (U-shaped bone in the neck, located above the level area of the thyroid cartilage) anterior or interior to the thyroid cartilage and helps to stabilize the collapsible region of the airway. Maxillary-mandibular advancement: Also called as bimaxillary advancement or double jaw advancement, maxillary-mandibular advancement provides the greatest improvement in treating severe obstructive sleep apnea compared to other procedures. In this process, the upper (maxilla) and lower (mandible) jaws are moved forward, and it effectively enlarges the airway in both the palate and tongue regions.

Tracheotomy: Tracheotomy is used to cure rare cases with chronic OSA syndrome or life-threatening sleep-disordered breathing.

Aum Ent Clinic - The Best Resort In Endoscopic Sinus Surgery

Endoscopic sinus surgeries have become one of the greatest problem-solvers for a wide range of sinus related diseases and conditions. In contrast to the conventional sinus surgeries that require opening up the nasal cavity so as to do the surgery, endoscopic sinus surgeries are minimally invasive surgeries that use endoscopes containing a camera at its end inserted through the nostrils, to view the inner sinus posture and condition as a live reel. They also widen the nasal drainage pathways and the paranasal sinuses, improving the nasal ventilation, so as to clear a lot of diseases conditions that had disrupted the nasal-sinus equilibrium. Instruments for the surgery are also inserted alongside to conduct the surgery. The surgery is done after providing anaesthesia.

Dr Shailesh Pandey's AUM ENT Clinic, being the best for endoscopic sinus surgery in Andheri, brings to you the best experience in sinus surgery through the efficient care and medical support that we provide. Sinusitis is caused when the mucous membrane gets infected, swelled and causes blockages in the sinus cavities, intense headache, breathing troubles, allergy, sneezing etc. Sinus infections treated with conventional methods like steaming. Normal oral medications can bring results if the infection is in the primary stage only. If the infection is worse, then sinus surgery must be done so as to get a permanent solution for the same. Endoscopic sinus surgery has been successful in clearing the major disease conditions of intense sinusitis and tumours in nasal passage or the back of the nose. Endoscopic sinus surgery can also be used as an approach to pituitary tumours.

Anatomy of the eardrum:


The eardrum,  scientifically referred to as the tympanic membrane is a thin, cone-shaped membrane. Its main function is to transmit sound.


The eardrum can be damaged or ruptured due to multiple reasons. Such as :
  • Infections: commonly seen in children. Due to an infection, the fluid accumulating behind the eardrum causes pressure on the eardrum resulting from the fluid build up.  this can cause the eardrum to rupture.
  • Pressure changes: This happens when the pressure outside the ear is different from pressure inside the ear.
  • Injury: injuries can also rupture the eardrum, such as:
  • Getting hit in the eardrum
  • Sports  injury
  • Falling on ear
  • Car accidents.

What does eardrum damage look like?


An eardrum rupture is a small tear or a hole in the membrane.
Since it is a thin tissue it is very delicate. The ruptured eardrum is also called perforated eardrum.



  • Noise or buzzing in the ear
  • Hearing loss
  • Ear infections
  • Weakness in the facial muscles.

When to seek treatment?

Usually, minor ruptures repair within three months without any treatment.
Antibiotics may be prescribed, either in the form of oral medications or ear drops. If the pain or discomfort exists painkillers may also be prescribed.
If the eardrum rupture has not healed, then an ENT must be consulted. In some cases, surgery may be required. Surgery is usually an outpatient procedure Which requires very less time.
