    How to discover the thyroid cancer

    Before defining the appropriate treatment program a set of essential diagnostic investigations is accomplished:

    • Laboratory analysis: thyroid hormones, antibodies, tumor markers;
    • Ultrasonography of the neck area;
    • Scintigraphy of the gland;
    • Fine-needle puncture biopsy with aspirate cytology.

    Methods of treatment of thyroid cancer

    All kinds of thyroid tumors, excepting highly-differentiated carcinomas, require surgical resection of the tumor/gland and subsequent (chemo-)radiotherapy. Therefore, the treatment of thyroid cancer is held on the collaboration of 2 medical branches: Endocrinal Surgery Unit and Clinic for Nuclear Medicine.

    Radioiodine ablation: radioactive iodine (131I) is implemented to patient orally in capsule. Iodine atoms are accumulated only in thyroid cells and due to β-radiation inhibit the thyroxine-producing activity, which allows to get rid of metastases as well. A small part of γ-radiation is also present, that is why this manipulation needs to be carried out under strict supervision of attending physician.

    The operations may be performed as standard or minimally invasive. During the entire operation neuromonitoring is held to save the vocal cord nerve.

    Who treats the thyroid cancer?

    Every single case engages the Head of the Endocrinal Surgery Clinic (Klinik für Endokrine Chirurgie) Prof. Dr. med. Cornelia Dotzenrath, who obtains the diploma of the European Board of Surgical Qualification and the Chief of Nuclear Medicine division (Klinik für Nuklearmedizin) Dr. Marco Tosch, who was endorsed as outstanding radiologist by FOCUS® Magazine.

    What is the cost for diagnostics and treatment?

    The cost for complex care treatment to completely resolve thyroid tumors is approximately 10,000 Euros. The price contingents on the kind of malignancy and complicacy of treatment.
