Information about Thyroid Cancer

 

The burden of thyroid disease in the general population is enormous.Thyroid tumors are the most common endocrine neoplasms Thyroid disorders are the most common among all the endocrine diseases in India. Recent studies showed 50% of people in the community have microscopic nodules, 3.5% have occult papillary carcinoma, 15% have palpable goitres, 10% demonstrate an abnormal thyroid-stimulating hormone level, and 5% of women have overt hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism.

 

In areas of iodine sufficiency, papillary carcinomas are the predominant variety. Different studies from India show a predominance of papillary malignancy followed by follicular malignancies.

 

Thyroid malignancies are divided into papillary carcinomas (80%), follicular carcinomas (10%), medullary thyroid carcinomas (5-10%), anaplastic carcinomas (1-2%), primary thyroid lymphomas (rare), and primary thyroid sarcomas 

 

Our main therapeutic approach in Thyroid cancer differs as per the stage of the disease.

 

Our medicines are planned such that it will minimize patients suffering in a short span of just few weeks. Along with this our medicines helps modify disease causing factors in patient’s body thereby reducing the chance of relapse or metastasis.Our treatment successfully increases patient’s survival by several folds and stimulates immunity to cause tumor regression.

 

In Thyroid cancer most commonly patient feel a painless, palpable, solitary thyroid nodule. Following symptoms can also be seen.

. Solitary nodules: Most likely to be malignant in patients older than 60 years and in patients younger than 30 years.

Nodular growth.

Rapid growth: Ominous sign.

Usually painless (nontender to palpation).

Hard and fixed  nodules.

 

Thyroid cancer can occur at any age, but the risk peaks earlier for women (who are most often in their 40s or 50s when diagnosed) than for men (who are usually in their 60s or 70s).

 

Follicular Thyroid cancers are more common in areas of the world where people’s diets are low in iodine.

 

Exposure to radiation therapy.

 

Family history of thyroid cancer. 

 

To determine whether your Thyroid tumor is benign or cancerous, you have been advised by your doctor to do some interventions as follows 

 

FNAB- This is important diagnostic tool in evaluating whether Thyroid nodule is benign or cancerous.

 

Laboratory testing

 

• Serum thyroid levels.

• Serum calcitonin/pentagastrin.

• Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay Imaging studies.

 

Imaging studies

 

• Neck ultrasonography.

• Thyroid radioiodine imaging.

• Neck computed tomography (CT) scanning or magnetic resonance imaging (avoid iodinated contrast agents).

 

1. Surgical Excision-surgery for thyroid lobectomy, subtotal thyroidectomy for well differentiated Thyroid cancer.

 

2. Thyroid cancer with lymph nodes involvement-

May involve compartmental lymph-node dissection, active surveillance, radioactive iodine ablation therapy, external-beam radiation therapy, and/or nonsurgical, image-guided, minimally invasive ablative approaches.
