Thyroid cancer affects the thyroid which produces hormones that regulate critical bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and weight. Rates for thyroid cancer are decreasing as the cancer is being caught earlier than in previous years, yet it is still fairly uncommon in the United States. There are five main types of thyroid cancer: thyroid lymphoma, medullary thyroid cancer, papillary thyroid cancer, follicular thyroid cancer, and anaplastic thyroid cancer. Papillary thyroid cancer is the most common, accounting for around 80% of all cases. Risk for developing tyroid cancer increases with exposure to radiation, family history of a goiter, and certain genetic predispositions. Treatments include surgery, hormone therapy, radioactive iodine, chemotherapy, and clinical trials. Each of the different types of thyroid cancers (mentioned abved) are staged based on cancer progression and severity. Most go up to IV stages and treatments for cancer vary according to these sublevel distinctions.
