Your nec.k: At right underneath the adams apple is the thyroid gland. In areas where iodine is low, patients can develop a goiter, an enlarged thyroid. Their neck will appear visibly larger.

The lower neck.: The bulk of the thyroid gland lies on both sides of your wind-pipe in your neck. This area is just above the bony notch at the top of your breast bone. There is a small bridge of tissue that connects the two lobes. Normally you cannot see or feel this gland. See a doctor if this area is puffy, feel like you have something in your throat, or there is a tenderness or fulness in this area.

Neck: The thyroid gland is located in the front part of the neck, lower down by the clavicles. It's really small and hard to feel, even for professionals at times.
