If you are experiencing any symptoms you believe are related to your thyroid, then you should discuss these initially with your GP. If necessary, your GP will arrange initial blood tests and then refer you to a thyroid specialist if you need further treatment. Mr Yiangou offers consultations, tests and treatment, including surgery, for all benign thyroid conditions and thyroid cancers.
In the UK, you will find a wealth of reliable information published online by the British Thyroid Foundation - a patient-led charitable organisation dedicated to helping those with thyroid disorders. Their website offers clear expanations about how your thyroid gland works as well as listing the signs and symptoms of both hyperthyroidism (over-active) and hypothyroidism (under-active). You may also join this charity and for an annual fee of £20 or less you would have access to patient leaflets and could join a local patient support group.
If you have already been diagnosed with a thyroid condition, you may need further information so we hope you will find the links below helpful. You can download leaflets instantly on the most common thyroid conditions from the American Thyroid Association website. The most common of these are listed below. You can find a more comprehensive list on the ATA website. Please be aware that preparation for any surgery varies slightly from country to country however if you do need surgery, then rest assured we would clarify precisely what you can expect.
