Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid cancer is a rare form of cancer in the tissues of the thyroid gland. Symptoms are often subtle but may include a palpable lump in the throat, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness or a change in voice. The causes and risk factors of thyroid cancer include genetic factors, previous exposure to radiation, long-term iodine deficiency and immune disorders. Treatment options include surgical removal of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy), radioiodine therapy and thyroid hormone therapy. Effective complementary medical treatments include, for example, hyperthermia or fever therapy. The prognosis is very good, especially if the disease is recognised early.

Collaboration with endocrinologists and integrative medicine enables individualised treatment plans that not only treat the disease, but also ensure the patient's quality of life after the operation.
