Thyroid Awareness Month - Introduction
September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month.
Thyroid cancer is one of the most common cancers and is the fastest growing in terms of number of new cases each year.
Thyroid cancer affects women 3 times as often as men.
With a timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment, we can successfully treat most patients. Thyroid cancer is best treated with a minimally invasive, outpatient operation that typically has people back to their normal lives within a week or two.
