What Is Thyroid Cancer?

Combating cancer starts with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Thyroid cancer occurs in the cells of a butterfly-shaped gland (thyroid) found in front of the neck at the base of the throat. The thyroid is part of the body's endocrine system. The endocrine system produces hormones that regulate the normal functions of the body, including blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, and weight.

Thyroid cancer is uncommon in the United States. However, rates seem to be increasing. If found early, thyroid carcinoma is one of the most treatable forms of malignant diseases.

Thyroid Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The types of thyroid cancer include:

Papillary thyroid cancer

About 80 percent of thyroid cancer cases begin in the follicular cells, which produce and store thyroid hormones.

Follicular thyroid cancer

Medullary thyroid cancer is rare and accounts for 3 to 8 percent of thyroid cancer cases. It arises in the C cells, which produce the hormone.calcitonin.

Medullary thyroid cancer

Follicular thyroid cancer also begins in the follicular cells of the thyroid. However, it may progress to Hurthle cell cancer, a potentially more aggressive type of follicular thyroid cancer.

Anaplastic thyroid cancer

Anaplastic thyroid cancer is an uncommon and difficult cancer to treat. Unlike other thyroid cancers that often occur between the ages of 40 and 50, anaplastic thyroid cancer typically affects adults age 60 and older.

Thyroid lymphoma

The rare thyroid lymphoma begins in the immune system cells of the thyroid. Its cancer cells grow and spread quickly.

Thyroid Cancer Symptoms in Men and Women

In most cases, early cancer of the thyroid does not reveal itself through symptoms. If signs of thyroid cancer occur, they often vary from person to person and may include:

  • Enlargement of the thyroid or swelling in the neck
  • Lump in the front of the neck (thyroid nodule)
  • Pain in the neck that may reach the ears
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Cough that persists and is not caused by a cold
  • Cough with blood
  • Swallowing problems
  • Changes in voice, such as hoarseness

It is important to discuss any signs of thyroid cancer with a medical professional since they may signal other health issues. A correct diagnosis, followed by proper treatment, can improve your thyroid cancer prognosis and life expectancy.

Thyroid Cancer Causes

Scientists have not determined the exact cause of thyroid cancer, but certain risk factors have been identified.

Risk factors for thyroid cancer include:

  • Family history of thyroid cancer
  • Family or personal history with breast cancer
  • Radiation exposure
  • Inherited mutation in the RET gene
  • Iodine deficiency
  • Being a woman
  • Age of 40 and above

It is important to note that not everyone with risk factors develops tumors in the thyroid, and not everyone without risk factors is immune to the disease.

Diagnostic Tests for Thyroid Cancers

The protocol for diagnosing thyroid cancer starts with your doctor asking questions about your symptoms and medical history. If your doctor suspects abnormal masses or cells, one or more of the following tests may detect cancer and determine if it has spread (metastasize).

  • Fine-needle-aspiration biopsy (FNA)
  • Computed axial tomography (CT) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Ultrasound scan
  • Genetic testing
