Thyroid - image description

This image shows the position of the thyroid gland. It’s in the lower middle part of the neck, shaped a bit like a butterfly. The thyroid gland is made up of two lobes, the left lobe and the right lobe. The section connecting the two lobes is called the isthmus. Behind and above the thyroid gland is the thyroid cartilage. The cartilage is what you can feel as your ‘Adam’s apple’.
