Living with
Thyroid Nodules

There are better options than invasive surgeries and lifelong medications


Overgrowth of Tissue on the Thyroid Gland

Thyroid nodules are abnormal growths of thyroid cells that form a lump within the thyroid gland. It is a very common entity, affecting about 20 million Americans.1

Fortunately, most thyroid nodules are not cancerous (benign) and do not cause any symptoms but some nodules can become enlarged and be felt, causing symptoms like difficulty breathing and swallowing.

A New Incisionless Treatment for Thyroid nodules

STARmed Thyroid RFA is a minimally invasive medical procedure that target treats benign thyroid nodules without hurting the healthy surrounding thyroid tissue.

Using ultrasound-guided imaging, the nodule is located and treated with a thin electrode (needle), hence no surgical incisions will be needed and no scarring will be left on the skin.

Since normal healthy thyroid tissue is preserved, there will be minimal affect on your thyroid functions and you will not need lifelong medications.
