What is Thyroid Cancer?

Thyroid cancer is a rare type of cancer that affects the thyroid gland, a small gland at the base of the neck. The most common symptoms of thyroid cancer are:

  • Painless lump or swelling in the neck

  • Difficulty in swallowing

  • Sudden hoarseness and vocal changes

  • Cough

Types of thyroid cancer:

Papillary thyroid cancer: Papillary thyroid cancer usually affects people under the age of 40, particularly women. This type of cancer arises from follicular cells, which produce and store thyroid hormones

Follicular thyroid cancer: Follicular cancer usually affects older adults and can spread into your lymph nodes and is likely to spread into your blood vessels.

Medullary thyroid cancer: Medullary thyroid cancer is detected at an early stage because it produces a hormone called calcitonin, which gets detected in blood test results
