New drug could help those with aggressive thyroid cancer
A recent study published in The Lancet Oncology reveals that the drug pazopanib may help patients with metastatic, rapidly progressing thyroid cancers.
Presence of thyroglobulin after radioiodine treatment may indicate recurrence of thyroid cancer
Detecting thyroglobulin (Tg) after initial surgery and radioactive iodine (131I) therapy for thyroid cancer may be predictive of an early cancer recurrence, according to a study reported at the 14th International Thyroid Congress, Doctor's Guide reports.
Thyroid cancer patients are increasingly using alternative therapies
In a report presented during the recent International Thyroid Congress, researchers from Boston University (BU) Medical Center found that more than 80 percent of patients with thyroid cancer report using some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapy. However, for 18 percent of those individuals, their CAM use was neither known nor prescribed by their physician, and their physician did not ask them about it, Endocrine Today reports.
New type of radiation therapy delivers faster treatment
Recent studies have shown that TomoTherapy - a system used to treat common and rare tumors throughout the body - may be more effective than other types of radiation.
Researchers discover new model for predicting the effects of osteoporosis on the general public
An article recently published in the journal Osteoporosis International demonstrates a new model that describes the current and future issues related to postmenopausal osteoporosis.
New type of surgery may benefit thyroid cancer patients
Doctors at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit are performing a new type of surgery that can remove thyroid cancer tumors without visible scarring, and without affecting speech or the ability to eat. An incisionless robotic surgical procedure called TransOral Robotic Surgery (TORS) allows patients to return to their normal lives in only a few days without significant pain or disfigurement.
China sees increase in hypothyroidism cases
A recent study conducted by the Chinese Medical Association's endocrinology branch shows that approximately one in 15 citizens is suffering from hypothyroidism. According to China Daily, this could be related to the nation's 1995 mandate to add iodine to salt.
Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey battles thyroid cancer and continues to dance
Actress Jennifer Grey may be best known for her role in the movie Dirty Dancing, and she has recently joined the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars (DWTS). However, the actress recently battled thyroid cancer, which was found during her pre-DWTS health screening, USA Today reports.
Researchers discover new model for predicting the effects of osteoporosis on the general public
An article recently published in the journal Osteoporosis International demonstrates a new model that describes the current and future issues related to postmenopausal osteoporosis.
Certain thyroid cancers have higher incidence of nodal metastases
A recent study published in Archives of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery suggests that malignant central nodal metastases - cancer that spreads to lymph nodes - are more likely to occur in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma than those with follicular variant papillary thyroid carcinoma.
Molecular imaging could improve thyroid cancer detection and treatment
A series of studies published in the latest issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine show that molecular imaging plays a critical role in the evaluation and treatment of a spectrum of cancers, including thyroid cancer, neuroendocrine tumors, Hodgkin lymphoma and non-small cell lung cancer, Health Imaging reports.
Radiation exposure may increase risk of thyroid disorders
One potential cause of thyroid disorders is exposure to radiation. People who have been exposed to production of nuclear weapons or above-ground detonation of an atomic bomb may have a higher risk for developing thyroid cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Moreover, children who have been exposed to nuclear substances may be more vulnerable to these conditions than adults.
Mutated gene may induce development of thyroid cancer
Scientists at the Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center have identified a gene called PTEN that may induce the development of thyroid cancer when mutated.
Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy for Papillary Thyroid Cancer
Managing Hormone Changes after Surgery
If you have a total thyroidectomy for papillary thyroid cancer (also known as papillary thyroid carcinoma), you will become hypothyroid and will need to take thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Learn about this treatment in this article.
Papillary Thyroid Cancer Prevention
Researchers haven't determined what causes papillary thyroid cancer (also known as papillary thyroid carcinoma), so it can't fully be prevented. But there are some ways to reduce your risk of developing it. Learn more in this article.
