Prof. Dr. Iyad Hassan Launches a New Website to Educate Patients on Endocrine and Cancer Diseases


Prof. Dr. Iyad Hassan one of the best endocrinology experts in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) launched a new website that provides patient’s educative information on the causes, symptoms, and treatments available for Endocrine diseases.

Through the hormones it produces, the thyroid gland influences almost all of the metabolic processes in your body. Thyroid disorders can range from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer. The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones. Too much thyroid hormone results in a condition known as hyperthyroidism. Insufficient hormone production leads to hypothyroidism. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are over 56,000 new cases of thyroid cancer in the US each year, and the majority of those diagnosed are papillary thyroid cancer—the most common type of thyroid cancer. Females are more likely to have thyroid cancer at a ratio of 3:1. Thyroid cancer can occur in any age group, although it is most common after age 30, and its aggressiveness increases significantly in older patients. Approximately 1.2 percent of all men and women will be diagnosed with thyroid cancer during the course of their lifetime.Sensing a need to educate the people about the Endocrine diseases, symptoms and the cure, Prof. Dr.Iyad Hassan has taken tremendous effort in bringing up this website which will feature educative information on the Endocrine diseases.
