Thyroid gland – A brief introduction

Thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck and in the front of wind pipe. It has two lobes, i.e., right lobe and left lobe, and isthmus, which is a bridge of tissue connecting two lobes. This gland is located below larynx (voice box) and slightly above trachea (wind pipe).

Thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland that is brownish-red in color and richly supplied with blood vessels. It releases thyroid hormones that control metabolism.
