Location Of Thyroid And Parathyroid Glands Image
Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands. The thyroid gland and parathyroid glands are a group of endocrine glands located in the base of the neck.
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped organ made of mostly glandular tissue and located in the base of the neck.
BUT, it doesn’t always go as planned ! It is this migration of the parathyroid glands through the neck during our gestation in the womb that makes finding them tricky later in life. Occasionally, the upper parathyroid glands are formed with the thyroid to such a high degree that they never become separated.
