Thyroid Cancer: It’s more common than you think.
In fact, it’s one of the most common cancers found in women today. It’s also a slow growing cancer and has a very high treatment success rate. Symptoms are difficulty swallowing, voice changes, a lump or swelling in the neck. Other related conditions include goiters, hyperthyroidism, and hyperparathyroidism. Many times, nodules are found by palpation or on ultrasounds, after which a needle biopsy is usually performed to confirm cancer or suspicion for cancer. Surgery is the most common treatment, but some conditions may require further treatment. At Kentuckiana ENT,we want you to be in the know.
