Thyroid Awareness Month: Learn About Thyroid Health and Signs of Cancer
January is Thyroid Awareness Month and this morning at 6:45, FOX40 will be talking with the Chief of Endocrinology for Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento, Dr. Craig Smith, about thyroid health. The thyroid gland makes hormones that regulate the way your body uses energy. Thyroid cancer is a disease that forms when abnormal cells begin to grow on the butterfly shaped gland located at the front of your neck.
