Thyroid Cancer Treatment - The Nebraska Medical Center

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
