The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the throat that releases hormones which regulate the body’s heart rate, temperatures, and metabolism. It is common for tumors to develop in or on this gland, but most are not cancerous. Even if non-cancerous, thyroid tumors can result in an overactive or underactive thyroid.
