Thyroid cancer

Thyroid cancer starts in the thyroid gland in the neck. It is a type of endocrine cancer.

Thyroid cancer is a rare cancer which affects more women than men and can occur at any age.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
