Thyroid disease is more common among females and is increasing in incidence.
Otolaryngology faculty members and residents will perform head and neck examinations as part of the subject's routine care. If the participant is noted to have thyroid disease, they will be asked if they would like to participate in the research portion by having approximately 10cc's of blood drawn. Faculty and staff will complete a data collection sheet that will contain demographic and clinical data.
