While thyroid disease is not something happy, early prevention of the disease is! January is the designated month, so everyone stop what you are doing right now, and CHECK YOUR NECK! It literally takes 5 seconds - Just put your head back, and feel around for any abnormal lumps or unusual "enlarged glands."
Your Thyroid is at the base of your neck, by the middle of your "clavicle" but you could have a lump anywhere. Remember, I found mine up near my chin on the right side.
