Parathyroid surgery

Your parathyroid glands are tiny glands located in the lower part of your neck. They sit near your thyroid gland.

They produce a hormone called ‘parathyroid hormone’ which controls the amount of calcium in your bloodstream.

Normally the parathyroid glands are small, but sometimes they become enlarged and start producing too much hormone.

People with enlarged parathyroids may be recommended surgical treatment.
