Thyroid cancer Information

Thyroid cancer often occurs in people with normal thyroid function, therefore a detection of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism would indicate that the cancerous tumor has grown big enough to affect thyroid function and cancer cells might have begun migrating to other body organs. Most patients with thyroid cancer can be diagnosed in the early stage, resulting in a high cure rate and low death rate. However, regular follow-up tests are required as thyroid cancer develops slowly.
