Thyroid cancer

Introduction of thyroid cancer
The thyroid sits in the lower front of the neck and its main function is to produce thyroid hormone that help control heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and weight. There are four main types of thyroid cancer: papillary, follicular, medullary and anaplastic. The choice of treatment depends on:

  • the type of thyroid cancer
  • the size of the nodule
  • whether the cancer has spread
