Helen F. Graham Cancer Center
The Helen F. Graham Cancer Center's Thyroid Cancer Multidisciplinary Center specializes in treating cancers of the thyroid.
Your multidisciplinary team
Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are used to treat thyroid cancers. Decades of clinical experience show that combinations of these treatments are often most effective. Your team will tailor your cancer treatment for your cancer and for you.
When you visit the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center, you will meet with a team of doctors in one visit:
- Your surgeon can order diagnostic tests, perform a biopsy to see if your tumor is malignant or operate to remove cancer if necessary.
- Your nuclear-medicine specialist can help to diagnose your cancer and determine its location.
- Your endocrinologist specializes in the body's endocrine system, which includes the thyroid gland, and has expertise in diagnosing and managing thyroid cancer.
Depending on the location and extent of your cancer, you may also require care from other specialists, including a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, dietitian and genetic counselor. Together, these specialists, in consultation with your primary-care doctor and with the support of your care-management team, will work with you to create the most appropriate and effective plan of treatment for your cancer.
