Endocrinologist: Or a primary care doctor. An oncologist deals with cancer and would not be able to help you.

Endo: The thyroid gland definitely falls under the purview of the endocrinologist, who studied the thyroid in detail as part of their training. Most internists and board certified family medicine physicians can treat this if you have no endo doctors in your area.
