For the past few decades, thyroid cancer has been one of the most rampant tumours in the glands. The standard approach to all thyroid cancer majorly includes surgery, therapy and radioactive iodine being offered to some patients.
Most of the thyroid cancer can be successfully treated but some advanced cases may be a little difficult to treat, especially if they do not respond to the radioactive iodine therapy. With the technological advancements in science, new treatments called immunotherapy can be explored. They target a certain protein which has the ability to shut down the T cells - a part of the white blood cells which help the body fight the infection and disease naturally. In blocking this activity, the new immunotherapy drugs help the T cells get back to the work in protecting the body.
Diagnosis of thyroid cancer -
1. Ultrasound - This test helps us to know if a thyroid nodule is solid or filled with fluids. It can also be used to confirm the number and the size of the thyroid nodules.
2. Chest X-ray - This helps us decide if the cancer has spread to the lungs or not.
3. Imaging Test - This is done to look for the suspicious areas which might be cancerous to learn how far the cancer has spread and to help determine if the treatment is working out or not.
4. Biopsy - The cells from the apprehensive areas are removed and look under the microscope. This test is usually done after the blood tests and ultrasound.
