Thyroid is a small gland (about 2 inches long) which lies in the front of your neck. It has two sides (or lobes) which wrap around the windpipe and take a butterfly type shape. Its two lobes are connected by the isthmus (a small tissue).
The role of the Thyroid gland is its constant release of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) into the bloodstream which are key to metabolism, growth, development, temperature, weight and heart rate. The thyroid hormone is crucial to brain development during infancy and childhood.
