Learn About Thyroid Cancer

Information and videos right at your fingertips.

With about 60,000 new cases diagnosed every year in the United States, thyroid cancer has become more and more prevalent in the past few years and is now the most common endocrine malignancy. There are four types of thyroid cancer (papillary, follicular, medullary and anaplastic) each with their own incidence rate and prognosis. Papillary and follicular thyroid cancers are considered differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). DTC is a common malignancy that comprises the majority (85-95 %) of these cases. Although surgery is a widely accepted method of treatment for DTC, the extent of surgical management is still debated in many cases.

Clinical Trials

The TCCC aims to improve both access and enrollment in clinical trials to ensure that all patients are receiving the highest and most personalized level of care and achieving the best possible outcome. Please note that this feature is based on planned future functionality. Implementation will be a product of continued research and development as well as TCCC user feedback.

The landscape of clinical trials in the United States is constantly changing and can often be overwhelming for both patients and physicians. When new clinical trials become available, the entry and exclusion criteria will be entered into the TCCC. Using the criteria submitted to the system by the trial investigators, the TCCC can alert the MD if a patient is a potential match for a clinical trial.
