Thyroid disease may be silent for a long time or can present with symptoms. Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism often are found when school performance or overall activity changes, or when thyroid enlargement is seen. Thyroid tumors, which include thyroid cancer, often are discovered when a lump in the neck is noticed by either a family member or a care provider.
