Thyroid cancer

Thyroid cancer

Thyroid cancer is the cancer of the thyroid gland. It is not a very common cancer. It arises from follicular or parafollicular thyroid cells. Symptoms include a painless swelling at the front of the neck, enlarged lymph nodes, hoarseness of voice, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing and pain in the advanced stages. Symptoms of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism may be found in later stages of thyroid cancer. Thyroid function tests and fine needle aspiration cytology are performed to establish a diagnosis. Effective management for thyroid cancer includes thyroidectomy performed by a ENT surgeon, replacement hormone therapy and radioactive iodine treatment.
