Caption

Parathyroid tumour surgery. Surgeon's hands dressing a sutured throat wound following surgery on an 80-year-old man. The surgery was to remove a parathyroid gland and tumour. The parathyroid glands are located near the thyroid gland in the throat. They are endocrine glands that produce parathyroid hormone, which controls the amount of calcium in the blood. This patient had an adenoma (a form of benign tumour) of these glands that was causing recurring kidney stones (renal calculi).
