How is thyroid cancer treated?
Thyroid cancer is therefore easy to detect. Following the discovery of a nodule, a blood test and a thyroid ultrasound will be performed, sometimes followed by cytopuncture. If the diagnosis is confirmed, an operation will have to be scheduled. The treatment of thyroid cancer is first and foremost surgical, with the removal of the thyroid gland. This allows patients to maintain a good quality of life. The cure rate is very high compared to other types of cancer.
