Thyroiditis is inflammation of the thyroid. Just as there can be inflammation of any organ in the body. Arthritis, for example, is inflammation of a joint. Thyroiditis is inflammation of the thyroid and can have many causes and different durations; it can be a very short, subacute or longer inflammation. Thyroiditis may or may not affect thyroid function, and thyroiditis can also involve very significant thyroid enlargement, or have no enlargement. It may or may not be accompanied by pain.
Thyroiditis is a very common and possibly under-diagnosed disease, so we cannot give a very clear prevalence rate, but it is very common and it is also more common in women than men.
