Types Of Thyroid Disease Lawsuits

  1. Hyperthyroidism
  2. Hypothyroidism
  3. Thyroid cancer
  4. Hashimoto’s Disease
  5. Goiter
  6. Thyroid nodules

Each of these are considered endocrine system injuries as the thyroid gland is part of the endocrine system. The type of doctor you see for these health issues is an endocrinologist.
