What is Thyroid Cancer?
Thyroid cancer originates in the thyroid gland, which produces hormones regulating metabolism, body temperature, and heart rate. Most cases are highly curable with treatments like surgery, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy.
The cancer manifests as a growth in the butterfly-shaped thyroid gland located at the base of the neck. It may not cause symptoms initially, but as it progresses, signs such as neck swelling, voice changes, and swallowing difficulties may arise.
