Internal Scar Tissue Post Thyroidectomy
Scar tissue?: Scar tissue typically forms and reforms for the first 12-18 months after any surgery. If scar tissue continues to grow after that in may be something else - keloid, lymph nodes, etc. Or in the case of thyroidectomy you may have thyroid tissue that has begun growing again in that area.

That being said, many feel they can help. Go to the first aid aisle at any pharmacy. Always remember to not get too much sun exposure on the incision for that first year after surgery (sunscreen). Hypertrophic scars can be treated too. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dr. Bogar: how many successful total thyroidectomy surgeries have you performed on adults? And, is there a way to ensure that the scar isn't too bad?

For the most part these will recover with very little sequelae. Hypersenstitivuty is common in any early wound. Please discuss with your surgeon as other causes could be responsible such as suture sensitivity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Often the burning sensation is due to the release of inflammatory mediators as your trigger points are released thru massage. If it continues to be a problem see your physician. ...Read more
