  • September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month

    September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month.

    Thyroid cancer is commonly diagnosed at a younger age than most other adult cancers (most frequently diagnosed among people aged 45-54). Nearly 3 out of 4 cases are found in women.

    The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for thyroid cancer in the United States for 2017 are 56,870 new cases of thyroid cancer (42,470 in women, and 14,400 in men).

    Thyroid cancer is the most rapidly increasing cancer in the U.S., and is highly treatable if detected early.

    The most common symptom is a growth (called a “nodule”) on the thyroid gland located on the neck near the Adam’s apple area.

    These nodule(s) can become larger in a short amount of time. Commonly, people see or feel the nodule themselves. Read More
