Understanding Thyroid Cancer
The thyroid gland is located in front of the neck just below the larynx. This gland is part of the endocrine system and regulates hormones in the body. Thyroid Cancer is a tumour or mass that forms on the gland which compromises its ability to produce hormones and manage the body’s metabolism.
There are about 300,000 reported cases of Thyroid Cancer across the world each year. This type of cancer seems to affect women significantly more than men, with about 3 out of 4 cases of the cancer being female.
The survival rate for Thyroid Cancer is very high with surgery usually being a viable option, although sometimes risky.
Most Common Symptoms
Common risk factors for Thyroid Cancer are gender and age, race, genetics, diets low in iodine and exposure to radiation. Common symptoms are fairly apparent since they revolve around the throat.
These symptoms can be things like: trouble swallowing, difficulty breathing, a lump in the neck or in the throat, hoarseness, throat and neck pain and persistent cough. Although different surgeries can be suggested based on the type and location of the cancer, they can come with different risks and side effects.
These can be as little as temporary or permanent hoarseness to, in the case of a lymphadenectomy, being put on permanent hormone therapy because of the absence of the thyroid gland.
