Parathyroid Adenoma Treatment in Mayom Hospital
There are four very small Parathyroid glands located near or at the back of your thyroid gland. They produce parathyroid hormone (PTH). This hormone helps control the amount of calcium and phosphorus in your blood.
A parathyroid adenoma is an abnormal benign tumor that causes the affected gland to release more PTH resulting in hyperparathyroidism leading to an increase in calcium resorption from bone and increased calcium levels in the blood. This eventually caused weak bones and Urinary stones with excessive urination along with abdomen and muscle pains.
Often these are asymptomatic and are detected with high serum calcium during routine blood workup.
Many symptoms of increased PTH masquerade as vitamin d deficiency and patients are often empirically treated with vitamin D supplementation which may lead to symptomatic worsening.
High blood calcium along with PTH calls for Usg Neck to pick up parathyroid swelling and Sestamibi Scan to confirm increased uptake by Adenoma.
