Diagnosing thyroid cancer.
Early detection and diagnosis is critical in preventing the cancer from spreading since the thyroid gland is located close to your lymph nodes. Schedule an appointment with your doctor if you suspect you may have symptoms of thyroid cancer.

- Trouble breathing
- Trouble swallowing
