The papillary form of cancer is the most common form, and it is also the most curable. The follicular form of thyroid cancer is more malignant than papillary. Follicular cancer is common for older people, and the cancer cures are typically successful. Medullary cancer originates in the upper lobe of the thyroid. It can spread to the lymph nodes in the early stages of the cancer. This type of cancer may also be genetic and could possibly run in families. Anaplastic is the rarest form of thyroid cancer. This cancer can spread rapidly through the lymph nodes, and could cause a massive lump on the neck. This type of cancer is again, common in people above the age of 65. Anaplastic cancer has the highest rate of fatality. Most cures involve chemotherapy. Actually, this version of cancer is the most susceptible to chemo. This is because thyroid cells act differently than other cells in the body. Thyroid cells are unique because they have the ability to absorb iodine. When you use chemotherapy, the iodine is concentrated to the cancer cells specifically. This cuts down on the negative effects of chemotherapy. Many patients who use chemotherapy as a cancer cure do not experience hair loss, nausea, diarrhea, or any of the other negative effects associated with chemotherapy. Typically, thyroid patients will have the growth removed surgically first. Than, the radioactive iodine treatment will begin and will continue for about two weeks. After that, patients will return to the doctor every 6 months to a year to get blood tests. Most thyroid patience never see it return after the initial radioactive iodine treatment. If you have been diagnosed with this dreaded disease, you can take comfort in the fact that thyroid cancer cures have a 95% success rate. Talk to your doctor right away about your treatment options so that you too can get on your way to a fast recovery.
