What is Thyroid Cancer?

Thyroid cancer affects the thyroid gland, a small gland that is located just below the larynx, also known as the voice box, the gland produces various hormones designed to keep the human body functioning, if it hasn’t gotten nutrients it requires people tend to feel lethargic and gain weight.

In a majority of cases the cancer develops very slowly, the first symptom is usually a lump in the neck that grows. Occasionally the cancer may press onto the windpipe and cause breathing problems. There is also a chance that the cancer will be found after cancer has been found elsewhere in the human body. However despite its position on the thyroid gland it rarely affects the production of hormones.
