Thyroid cancer is a cancer originating from follicular or parafollicular thyroid cells.

The most effective management of aggressive thyroid cancers is surgical removal of thyroid gland (thyroidectomy) followed by radioactive iodine ablation and TSH-suppression therapy.

Chemotherapy or radiotherapy may also be used in cases of distant metastases or advanced cancer stage.

Five year survival rates are 98% in the United States.

Most often the first symptom of thyroid cancer is a nodule in the thyroid region of the neck.

However, many adults have small nodules in their thyroids, but typically under 5% of these nodules are found to be malignant.
