Thyroid cancer cases growing in U.S.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide observance, sponsored and initiated by ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association. It began in 2000 as a week and in 2003, it expanded to the whole month of September.

Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month listed in directories and references, including the American Hospital Association’s Calendar of Health Observances & Recognition Days. Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month promotes thyroid cancer awareness for early detection, as well as care based on expert standards, and increased research to achieve cures for all thyroid cancer.

Thyroid cancer is the fastest increasing cancer in the U.S. It affects people of all ages, from young children to seniors. Even when treatable, thyroid cancer is life-disrupting, expensive, and stressful both for patients and for loved ones. Early detection is important because some thyroid cancers are aggressive and difficult to treat.
