Quickly check your thyroid for abnormalities
The thyroid gland sits just below your adam's apple. A small change in its appearance can be easily detected with this simple one minute test.
A swelling in the region of your neck could be the beginning of a thyroid nodule.
Thyroid nodules are often benign, and not a cause for worry, but accompanied with other symptoms like weight loss, gain, or pain need to be investigated.
What does the video show?
The video demonstrates a way to check your own thyroid gland at home
Sit in front of a mirror, and get a glass of water. Raise your neck upwards so that you can clearly see the area of the throat. Drink a sip of water and note how the adam's apple moves up and down. A swelling on either side may need attention from a doctor.
