By Kristin Hayes:
ENT disorders are among the most common health problems diagnosed in both adults and children. As a survivor of thyroid cancer, I know first hand how debilitating and frightening any illness can be. No matter what your specific health problem is, education is both comforting and essential. I hope that others will use my site to learn valuable information to improve their health and get the care that they need.
