The throat is a muscular tube that extends from the back of the nose to the neck. It contains the pharynx, larynx, tonsils and adenoids, and serves as a passageway for air, food and liquid. Diseases affecting the thyroid, parathyroid and salivary glands can impact many of your body’s regular processes. Fortunately, many of these disorders are easily treatable.

Tumors that develop in the throat, voice box, vocal cords or tonsils are referred to as throat cancer. People who smoke, use smokeless tobacco or drink alcohol are most at risk of developing this type of head and neck cancer.Treatment Options
When certain conditions interfere with normal thyroid production, surgical removal of the thyroid gland is performed. This is usually done when thyroid cancer has been detected, an otherwise benign thyroid nodule grows so large it causes problems or hyperthyroidism (a disorder in which excess thyroid hormone is produced) does not respond to treatment with medications or radioactive iodine, though this is rare.More About Thyroids
