In brief: Maybe

80% of patients with primary hyperparathyroidism have single gland disease.
But it is important to prove that. Find an experienced endocrine surgeon. You might look at the american association of endocrine surgeons website to find someone in your area.

In brief: Most of the time

85% to 90% of patients with hyperparathyroidism have a single parathyroid adenoma.
The remainder of the time this is due to two or more glands.
