Thyroid cancer is one of the most treatable and curable forms of cancer. Dr. Bill Lydiatt, a surgical oncologist and thyroid cancer survivor, explains the symptoms, treatment and why it's important to catch thyroid cancer early. The first sign of a cancer in the thyroid gland is a painless lump in the neck. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently.
Other symptoms may include:
- hoarseness or loss of voice as the cancer presses on the nerves to the voice box
- difficulty swallowing as the cancer presses on the throat
