Description: Cancer of the thyroid, located in the neck, affects 48,000 patients each year. In this video, Dr. Christine Landry, a surgical oncologist specializing in thyroid cancer at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, helps us understand its diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment expectations. Patients may discover their thyroid cancer by feeling a lump in their neck, having hoarseness of the voice, or experience trouble swallowing. Typically treated by removing the thyroid, this cancer remains quite treatable and many patients can expect to go on with a full life.
