The thyroid is a small gland at the front of the neck, just above the breast bone, that does an important job. It produces horomones that regulate heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. Cells in the thyroid can become cancerous, and thyroid cancer often has no symptoms. Dr. JonBen Svoboda explains.
