Peculiarities of thyroid cancer treatment

Thyroid cancer diagnostic and treatment scheme depends on the tumor stage.

Basic diagnostic procedure is ultrasound during which biopsy can be performed. For precise localization of a tumor some cases also require carrying out of MRI and radioisotope scanning for metastase determining.

Depending on the result of diagnostics doctors prescribe the treatment. Early stages of thyroid cancer require partial or complete removal of thyroid (thyroidectomy). At stage 3 and 4 surgical treatment can be combined with chemo-, immune or targeted therapy.

Diagnostics of thyroid cancer

Diagnostics of thyroid gland cancer mainly includes:

  • Consultation with surgeon and endocrinologist;
  • Complete physical examination, including ultrasound, biopsy, blood counts, MRI and Computer Tomography;
  • Examination usually lasts 5 days.

Thyroid cancer treatment methods

  • Radioiodine. It is consumed in the form of capsules or as a liquid. It is taken orally, then is absorbed by the digestive tract and collected in cells of the thyroid gland. This method stops the growth and activity of thyroid gland cells. The hyperactive functions of the thyroid gland return to normal state, and unwanted tissues are destroyed. After this procedure, patients have to keep the diet, rules of self-hygiene, and to consume a lot of water.
  • Thyroidectomy – total removal of thyroid gland and its nodes. After this procedure patients have to consume special hormones until the end of life.
  • Subtotal thyroidectomy – partial removal of thyroid gland. Doctors leave the healthy part of gland.

During the surgical intervention to treat thyroid gland cancer, the frozen section method is used. The main goal of the method is microscopic rapid examination of tissue sections obtained by cutting a frozen small part of tumor.

The value of this method is that the surgeon gets the opportunity to know whether the tumor is totally removed or intervention should be repeated.

Staging of thyroid cancer

  • Stage I - the tumor is within the thyroid gland, no metastases and gland capsule deformation.
  • Stage II a - single tumor that deforms the capsule or multiple nodes in thyroid gland without metastasis.
  • Stage II b - tumor metastasizes to the lymph nodes on one side of the gland.
  • Stage III - tumor invasion through the capsule, compression of adjacent organs, lymph node metastases at both sides.
  • Stage IV - tumor invasion into surrounding tissues or distant metastasis.
