Cancer Home > Treatment for Thyroid Cancer
After you have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer, you and your healthcare provider will come up with a treatment plan. Some of the options that may be available to you include:
- Radiation therapy
- Radioactive iodine
- Hormone therapy.
Many factors will play a role in your choice(s) of treatment, such as the type and stage of your cancer. Regular checkups are essential after you have finished your treatment. Good follow-up care can help ensure that any changes in your health are detected early.
