    Taken from here:
    Your thyroid gland is one of the endocrine glands, which make hormones to regulate physiological functions in your body. The thyroid gland manufactures thyroid hormone, which regulates the rate at which your body carries on its necessary functions. Other endocrine glands are the pancreas, the pituitary, the adrenal glands, the parathyroid glands, the testes, and the ovaries.

    The thyroid gland is located in the middle of the lower neck, below the larynx (voice box) and just above your clavicles (collarbones). It is shaped like a "bow tie," having two halves (lobes): a right lobe and a left lobe joined by an "isthmus.". You can't always feel a normal thyroid gland.
    Everyone has thyroid glands in his/her body so I don't think you friend is 'developing' thyroid gland. Perhaps he has hypothyroid/hyperthyroid. Since you are not sure of his condition, perhaps you can bring something safe instead of medicine/herbals. HTH
