The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland inside the neck that produces two hormones that travel throughout the body. A thyroid that is overactive (producing too much thyroid hormone) results in a disorder called hyperthyroidism. Likewise, a thyroid that is underactive (producing too little thyroid hormone) results in a disorder called hypothyroidism. Read on for more about the symptoms of hyper- and hypothyroid disease.
