Thyroid cancer

Thyroid cancer is a disease in which thyroid cells become abnormal, grow out of control, and form a cancerous tumor. Cancer   cells are found in the tissues of the thyroid gland. There are four types of cancer of the thyroid: papillary, follicular, medullary, and anaplastic. The most common symptom of thyroid cancer is a lump, or nodule, that can be felt in the neck. The primary treatment for thyroid cancer is surgical.
