Surgery is the most common treatment for cancer in the parathyroid glands.

Overview

We first may begin treatment to control your hypercalcemia, or excess calcium in the blood. Our surgical oncologists may use minimally invasive, video-assisted surgery, which can minimize your pain and recovery time. If you need radiation therapy, we will work to kill or shrink cancer cells while minimizing the effect on other organs. We may also prescribe vitamin D if tests show that you are deficient.
