ABSTRACT

Objective: This study aimed to study the epidemiological data of surgical thyroid diseases, the frequency of symptoms of these diseases. Materials and Methods: The variables recorded included age, gender, symptoms of the patients, history of previous radiation and the surgical treatment used. Results: In our study, we had a 85.7% female prevalence. The most common manifestations were lump in the neck (59 patients, 84.3%), followed by dysphagia (34 patients, 48.6%) and pain in the neck (25 patients, 35.7%).However, the least common manifestations were anxiety (3 patients, 4.3%) and diarrhea (4 patients, 5.7%). Most of the cases were treated by total thyroidectomy (74.3%), while 25.7% were treated by thyroid lobectomy. Conclusion: This study shows the need for a bigger study on a larger scale in order to understand the epidemiological data of surgical thyroid diseases.
