                                          The incidence of thyroid cancer is rising,
                                                             the cure rate is high.
                     But this is a serious disease and not to be considered "the good cancer."

Do you know the symptoms?

                                   * A lump in the throat,

                                   * Difficulty swallowing,

                                   * Pain in the neck or ears,

                                   * Difficulty swallowing, or constant wheezing,

                                   * Frequent coughing,

                                   * Or, a hoarse voice.

Typically treatment involves surgery and radioactive iodine.

                                             **A recurrence may occur, years later**

There are no clear causes, 
                                however the risk factors are:
                                                             high exposure to radiation, 
                                                             family or personal history of goiter,
                                                             or, certain genetic syndromes.

Please watch the following video, which is informative and inspirational.
