Thyroid Cancer Treatment

Receive excellent treatment for thyroid gland cancer from the specialists at Adventist HealthCare.

Thyroid Cancer Surgery

Your treatment for thyroid cancer will begin with surgery to remove all or part of the remaining gland (thyroidectomy). Whenever possible, your surgeon will use minimally invasive techniques that reduce pain and recovery time.

After surgery, you may swallow a pill with radioactive iodine, which will destroy any remaining cancerous tissue in the thyroid. You’ll stay in the hospital for two days.

Medications

You may need to take daily thyroid hormone replacement pills. The medication replaces the work of your thyroid gland so you stay healthy. It may help prevent cancer from coming back.

Personalized Care & Support

During your journey through cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery, you’ll get medical and emotional support from a compassionate, experienced cancer care team. Take advantage of support and wellness services to feel better in mind, body and spirit.
