... difference between seeing an endocrinologist that you have to wait 5 to 7 months to get an appointment and an ent where you can get an appointment in 2 weeks?
The endo is a body hormone specialist. They deal with anything that has to do with the endocrine system. They see people with diabetes, thyroid problems, pituitary problems, growth hormones problems-pretty much any hormones other than reproductive hormones-that's a different specialty. An ENT specializes in structural problems and infections in the ear, nose and throat. He might be able to remove or treat the nodules but he wont be able to manage any thyroid imbalances caused by the nodules or the removing of them. That would be where the endo would step in. Does that help?
