Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments for Hypothyroidism
Hypothyroidism—when your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone—is extremely common, but it’s also a very treatable thyroid disorder. This slideshow explains the common causes, symptoms, and treatments of hypothyroidism.
Experts update recommendations for radioactive iodine therapy for thyroid disease
Researchers on a task force developed by the American Thyroid Association (ATA) recently created an updated list of recommendations that healthcare providers may consult before prescribing radioactive iodine 131 (I-131) to treat thyroid disease.
Genetic intestinal condition increases risk of thyroid disease, cancer
Recent research seems to confirm the growing consensus that an inherited intestinal polyp condition may increase the risk of thyroid disease.
'Decision aid' may inform people with early-stage thyroid cancer of their options
Researchers at the University of Toronto recently made a computer-based educational program to better inform people with papillary thyroid cancer of their treatment options.
Expert discusses dental x-rays and thyroid cancer risk
Recently, a medical expert at CNN Health reviewed the risk of thyroid cancer associated with repeated exposure to dental x-rays.
Small tumors in adults over age 45 become most common form of papillary thyroid cancer
Data from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) have shown that the most common form of papillary thyroid cancer is now microcarcinomas occurring in adults over the age of 45.
Statement addresses radiation, radioactive iodine, risk of thyroid cancer
In the wake of the radiation leaks at Fukushima I Nuclear Plant in Japan, U.S. health officials recently released a statement regarding the disaster's risk to thyroid health.
Delphian node involvement may mean worse outlook for thyroid cancer
A new study has determined that when thyroid cancer metastasizes in the Delphian lymph node, there is a higher likelihood that many parts of the neck will be involved as well.
Physicians note unusual reaction to radioactive iodine after thyroidectomy
Healthcare experts say that radioactive iodine can be safely administered after a thyroidectomy because only leftover thyroid cells will absorb the isotope. However, a group of physicians recently witnessed an exception to this principle.
Study: DNA-transcribing protein affects severity of anaplastic thyroid cancer
Anaplastic thyroid cancer is one of the most dangerous varieties of thyroid carcinoma, but a new study may have found at least one genetic controller that determines its severity.
In Japan, experts say biggest fallout-related risk is thyroid cancer
While experts are saying that North Americans are unlikely to be affected by radiation leaks in Japan, they are noting that Japanese citizens may have a higher risk of thyroid cancer.
UN releases report on Chernobyl survivors with thyroid cancer
The biggest negative health impact caused by the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster is the subsequent increase in Ukrainian thyroid cancer rates, according to a new United Nations (UN) report.
Radioactive iodine does not boost recurrence of thyroid cancer in Chernobyl survivors
A group of Russian and Japanese scientists has determined that people exposed to radiation during the Chernobyl disaster are unlikely to develop recurring papillary thyroid cancer as a result of subsequent treatment with radioactive iodine.
Japanese scientists analyze use of surgeries for papillary thyroid cancer
A group of scientists from Kuma Hospital, Japan, recently published a report analyzing the frequency and necessity of two common treatments for papillary thyroid cancer - the thyroidectomy and lymph node dissection.
Researchers explore atypical treatments for medullary thyroid cancer
Given that the survival rate for medullary thyroid cancer is not as optimal as those of more common forms of the disease, researchers in Germany have been exploring alternative treatments for instances in which medullary carcinomas do not respond well to radioactive iodine treatment.
