Screening for Hyperthyroidism
Screening is done to find a problem and treat it early. Tests are given to people who do not have symptoms but who may be at high risk.
At this time, there are no screening tests or screening guidelines for hyperthyroidism. In some cases, the doctor may do a blood test called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test.
