Thyroid Cancer Costa Rica

The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck below the Adam's apple and regulates many important functions within the body. It is divided into two lobes connected by a narrow bridge of tissue. The two main types of thyroid cells that can become cancerous are follicular cells, which produce and store thyroid hormones, and C cells, which produce the hormone calcitonin.

Specialists recommend surgery for most thyroid gland tumors. We offer the latest advances in surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy (for anaplastic or metastatic cancer), radioactive iodine treatment and thyroid hormone therapy.

When detected early, cancer of the thyroid gland is highly treatable.
