Thyroid cancer surgery

Thyroid Health

The choice of treatment depends on the type of thyroid cancer, the size of the cancer the patient’s age and whether the cancer has spread to lymph nodes or other organs.

Surgery is generally the main treatment of thyroid cancer, except for some specific types of thyroid cancers. If thyroid cancer is diagnosed by a fine needle biopsy, surgery to remove the tumour and all or part of the remaining thyroid gland can be recommended.
