Thyroid Cancer


Each year in the United States, more than 37,000 people are diagnosed with thyroid cancer. It is estimated that there are more than 388,000 thyroid cancer survivors living in the U.S. today. Advances in surgery and radioactive iodine treatment have contributed to high rates of thyroid cancer survival. In addition, advances in supportive care have made thyroid cancer treatment more tolerable, leading to improved quality of life. Understanding thyroid cancer treatment options, the role of different doctors specializing in the treatment of thyroid cancer, and how and when to access new and innovative thyroid cancer treatment options available through clinical trials is essential in order to achieve the best outcome from thyroid cancer treatment. The Cancer Consultants Thyroid Cancer Information Center has been designed to help patients understand thyroid cancer and thyroid cancer treatment options while providing ongoing information, inspiration, support, and community to individuals affected by a diagnosis of thyroid cancer.
