Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid cancer develops when cells change or mutate. The abnormal cells begin multiplying in thyroid and, once there are enough of them, they form a tumor. Thyroid cancer is more common in women than men. Women tend to get thyroid cancer in their 40s and 50s, while men who get it are usually in their 60s or 70s. About 80% of all thyroid cancers cases are papillary thyroid cancer. Follicular thyroid carcinoma (FTC) is the second most common cancer of the thyroid. Medullary thyroid cancer starts as a growth of abnormal cancer cells within thethyroid. These special cells are the parafollicular C cells. Anaplastic thyroid cancer, also called undifferentiated thyroid cancer, is very rare and makes up only 1 to 2% of all thyroid cancers.
