Thyroid cancer is rare but the incidence is increasing in the United States. Fortunately, most thyroid cancers can be treated surgically and carry a good prognosis, with appropriate treatment. MultiCare Rockwood Cancer and Blood Specialty Center offers the region's only multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to the treatment of thyroid cancer patients.
As with other cancers, treatment can be complex, therefore newly diagnosed thyroid cancer cases are discussed at thyroid tumor board with experts in surgery, endocrinology, radiology and pathology to develop personalized treatment plans. At MultiCare Rockwood Thyroid Cancer Clinic, patients can see Carol Wysham, MD, endocrinologist, and Renu Sinha, MD, endocrine surgeon at the same visit because thyroid cancer is treated by surgery, hormonal therapy and possible radioactive iodine.
