Top 4 Deepened Voice Causes

  1. 1.Hypothyroidism

    Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid, a butterfly-shaped organ inside the neck, no longer produces adequate levels of hormones. Thyroid hormones are essential for many bodily functions including breathing, heart rate, and metabolism.

    You should visit your primary care physician. Hypothyroidism is a complex condition that is usually treated with hormone replacement therapy.

    fatigue, depressed mood, difficulty concentrating, weight gain, muscle aches

    Primary care doctor
  2. 2.Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

    The adrenal glands make hormones in the body. If they are not working, it will affect a child's ability to grow and develop. This is, however, treatable.

    You should see your primary care physician (PCP) tomorrow for a sick visit.

  3. 3.Acromegaly

    Acromegaly is an uncommon condition where the body makes too much growth hormone, which is a hormone made by the pituitary gland that stimulates growth and repair of various body tissues. In most cases the excess hormone comes from a small non-cancerous growth in the pituitary gland.

    You should visit your primary care physician. Acromegaly is usually treated by surgical removal of the abnormal growth in the pituitary gland.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    fatigue, headache, joint pain, weight gain, vision changes
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
  4. 4.Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma

    Adrenocortical carcinoma is an aggressive cancer of the adrenal glands. The cancer has often invaded nearby tissues or metastasized to distant organs at the time of diagnosis, and the overall 5-year survival rate is only 20-35%.

    You should visit your primary care physician within the next 24 hours. Surgical excision is curative; however, a large percentage of patients are not surgical candidates.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:
    fatigue, depressed mood, loss of appetite, weight gain, irritability
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
