Subclinical...

The thyroid gland is an endocrine gland located anterior to the trachea and inferior to the thyroid cartilage.

Its primary function is to control the body’s metabolism by regulating how quickly the body uses energy, proteins, and hormones. The two lateral lobes are connected by the middle lobe called the isthmus, which lies directly on top of the trachea. The entire gland is enclosed in a...
