If the parathyroid glands grow larger than a pea, this could indicate a problem.
If a person develops a parathyroid disease, they'll need a procedure to extract the gland with the tumor or other abnormality. Another serious parathyroid gland issue is overactivity of the parathyroid gland, causing a calcium imbalance.
