Caption: Thyroid gland adenoma. Light micrograph of a section through a thyroid gland adenoma. Adenomas are benign (non-cancerous) tumours (neoplasms). The thyroid gland is situated in the neck, and controls the metabolic rate of the body. The adenoma is displaying follicles that contain fluid (colloid), with large nuclei (dark pink). An adenoma may cause excess hormone production (hyperthyroidism or thyroxicosis). This excess may result in fatigue, rapid heartbeat and a higher metabolic rate. If left untreated the adenoma may turn malignant (cancerous). Treatment involves the partial or complete removal of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy). Magnification unknown.
