What is Thyroid Cancer?

Thyroid cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the thyroid gland, which is located in the front of the neck, just below the larynx (voice box). The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate metabolism, heart rate, and body temperature. Thyroid cancer occurs when cells in the thyroid gland grow and divide uncontrollably, forming a tumour. There are several types of thyroid cancer, but the most common types are papillary thyroid cancer and follicular thyroid cancer. Treatment for thyroid cancer usually involves surgery to remove the thyroid gland, followed by radioactive iodine therapy to destroy any remaining cancer cells. In some cases, radiation therapy or chemotherapy may also be used. The prognosis for thyroid cancer is generally good, with a high survival rate, especially when detected early and treated promptly.

Route of administration: Oral, Intravenous
