What is Thyroidectomy Surgery?
Thyroid cancer involves tumors growing on and in the thyroid gland. To eliminate the cancer and prevent it from spreading, it is vital that the tumor be removed from the body. Thankfully, modern surgery and the position of the gland in the neck allow surgeons to remove the disease from the body. Modern techniques allow for surgeons to make a minor incision, most often about three centimeters, and insert an endoscope in order to view the gland and remove the tumor.
Depending on the extent of the cancer, a surgeon may choose to remove part of or the entire gland. Afterward, you may require radioactive iodine treatment, thyroid hormone therapy, or other procedures in order to ensure that the cancer does not return or spread. Combined with the help of a skilled surgeon, you can be cancer free and healthy for years to come.
