Excision of Parathyroid

Excision of ParathyroidSometimes, benign noncancerous growths called adenomas appear on one or more of a person's parathyroid glands. The cause of most parathyroid adenomas is unknown. However, about 10 percent are thought to be hereditary. Radiation exposure of the head and neck also may increase the risk of adenomas. Parathyroid carcinoma, a rare endocrine malignancy, accounts for less than 1% of cases of sporadic primary hyperparathyroidism. Clinical manifestations are generally more severe than in common benign diseases such as parathyroid adenoma or hyperplasia.
