In brief: Summary

The thyroid is located on the lower front neck by the clavicle in the center. Any abnormality of the thyroid can be called a disease.
Examples: thyroiditis, tumors, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, grave's disease. The thyroid hormone is a rate regulator. Too much speeds everything in the body up. Too little slows it down.
