Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid cancer is a rare type of cancer that affects the thyroid gland, a small gland at the base of the neck. Most people who have this cancer do recover very well because the cancer is usually found early and the treatments work well. The cause of this condition is unclear. However, there are risk factors that can increase one's chances of developing the condition and they include:

• Benign thyroid condition
• Inheriting a faulty gene
• Radiation exposure
• Diet containing low levels of the trace element, iodine
