Does thyroid grow back?
Yes. It is practically impossible for a surgeon to remove every cell when performing a thyroidectomy. When taking thyroid hormone replacement medication following surgery, thyroid tissue that grows back will not be stimulated to produce thyroid hormone. However, if the patient discontinues medication after confirming regrowth, the new gland may start to overproduce. The result, hyperthyroidism all over again.

yes they do grow back just like spiders and some lizards
In the neck.
No they can't. They die three weeks after their head gets chopped off.
I have had several thyroid biopsies and all of them were back within 2 to 3 days. I had one last Tues and it's still not available, altho the holiday weekend may be the reason…. I guess it's up to the pathologist doing the work it involves.
If diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis can your thyroid fluctuate back to normal and then above normal without being on medication?
Yes, thyroid levels can and often do fluctuate from low to high and back low again in Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Much depends upon your antibody activity (which fluctuates frequ…ently) and your consumption of iodine and other goitrogenic foods.No, continue to see your doctor. Hashimoto's thyroiditis or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease where the body's own antibodies attack the cells of the thyroid. Treatment is with daily thyroxin (with the sodium salt of thyroxine liothyronine). It is administered when the need to raise levels of circulating thyroxine is urgent.

Could a hard lump on the back of the neck be related to the surgery that you had on your thyroid gland?
\nI certainly wouldn't think so. When something occurs in the front of the neck, and lymph gland reaction will be limited to the front of the neck.\n. \nIn the posterior nec…k, there are lymph glands there as well, but this "hard lump" could also be a sebaceous cyst. \n. \n"Hard lump" is not usually heard from a patient, and I would be concerned and want to know if there are other "hard lumps", such as under the arms, and in the groin (and actually get to examine them).\n. \nIf there are multiple "hard lumps", I would strongly suggest you see a physician and let him determine the cause.\n. \nThere are many "innocent" reasons for swollen lymph glands (if that is what this is), but there are some not-so-innocent things that could cause that as well...
Ir you touch your throat at the bottom of your neck, the last bump you feel it your thyroid gland. It should never be visibly protruding, just a little lump.

Depends on how much of it you lose, and how the wound is treated. If you lose something like half the nail, or even down to the cuticle, and the cut is left open, then somethi…ng fairly functional and natural looking can grow back. But the further towards the joint, and particularly if the wound is stitched up, the more likely you are to end up with a stump.
