This article discusses some facts about thyroid cancer. It gives some statistics from the American Cancer Society (ACS), as well as other details. Before continuing, please keep in mind that the information provided is not intended to be used as professional advice in the medical field. If you need such advice, please contact someone who is prepared to offer it. According to the ACS, an estimated 44,670 new cases of thyroid cancer will occur during the 2010 calendar year. About three-quarters of those were estimated to happen in women, with the other quarter in men. The ACS also mentions that cancers of this gland are one of the best in five-year survival rates, at 97 percent. Some possible early symptoms of thyroid cancer include an enlarged lymph node, and a thyroid nodule. Vocal changes and pain in the front of the neck may also occur at later stages. However, symptoms that seem like these (and even if they are actually these symptoms) do not necessarily mean that there is cancer. Please contact someone in the medical field to look for a diagnosis, rather than attempting self-diagnosis based on these items. There are at least five kinds of malignant thyroid tumors (cancers): anaplastic, follicular, medullary, papillary, and lymphoma. There is also at least one kind of benign tumor of this gland: adenoma. Consider that each type is different, and may have different clinical presentation. Aside from cancers, other thyroid problems can include different types of hyperthyroidism (overactive function), hypothyroidism (underactive function), and anatomical disorders.
