Thyroid cancer is on the rise

Cancer Newsline - 06/16/2014

The number of thyroid cancer cases is growing each year and it’s unclear why. In the United States, there were about 60,000 new thyroid cancer cases (45,310 in women, and 14,910 in men) in 2013. Thyroid cancer has a high cure rate, but it’s important to go to a specialized, multidisciplinary center to ensure proper care. Naifa Busaidy, M.D., associate professor in Endocrine Neoplasia and Hormonal Disorders at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses all forms of thyroid cancer: papillary, follicular, hurthle cell carcinoma, medullary and anaplastic.

Guest: Naifa Busaidy, M.D.
