The thyroid gland
is one of the largest endocrine glands.
The thyroid gland
is found in the neck,
below the thyroid cartilage which forms
the laryngeal prominence,
or "Adam's apple".
The isthmus
the bridge between
the two lobes of the thyroid is located inferior to the cricoid cartilage.

The thyroid gland
controls how quickly the body
uses energy, makes proteins, and controls how sensitive the body is to other hormones.
It participates in these processes by producing thyroid hormones.
These hormones regulate
the rate of metabolism
and affect the growth
and rate of function of many other systems in the body.
Hormonal output from the thyroid
is regulated by
thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)
produced by the anterior pituitary,
which itself is regulated
by thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) produced by the hypothalamus..
