Hyperparathyroidism

Our body has four parathyroid glands.  These glands are oval shaped and the size of a grain of rice located in your neck underneath your thyroid gland.  They produce parathyroid hormone (PTH) which helps maintain a balance of calcium in the blood.  Hyperparathyroidism is an excess of this hormone.
