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:
 
  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Radioactive iodine
  • Chemotherapy
  • 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.
