The thyroid is a gland in the neck that makes hormones to help the body function normally.

Overview

Depending on the type and stage of the cancer, you may need more than one kind of treatment. We may suggest surgery to remove all or part of the thyroid gland, radioactive iodine treatment, thyroid hormone therapy, external beam radiation therapy or chemotherapy. Often, two or more of these are combined. Most thyroid cancers can be treated, especially if they haven’t spread. Our specialized cancer team will guide you through the process.
