Thyroid Follicles: The thyroid follicles are structures located within the thyroid gland that are created by groups of thyroid epithelial cells arranged in spheres. Thyroid follicles absorb iodine from the blood in order to produce thyroid hormones, including triiodothyronine and thyroxine. Conditions that can afflict the thyroid follicles include hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer, thyroid nodules, iodine deficiency, goiter, Grave's disease, trauma, and hypopituitarism.
