Thyroid Cancer

Symptoms and Signs of Thyroid Cancer

Symptoms of thyroid cancer are a painless lump in the neck, difficulty swallowing, coughing and an enlarged thyroid gland. If a lump is detected, patients are advised to seek medical screening and diagnosis, as there are many health conditions that can cause swelling in the throat. 
Other symptoms and signs of thyroid cancer may accompany a painless lump and may include the following:
  • Loss of voice or hoarseness
  • Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing)
  • Problems breathing
  • Throat/neck pain that does not get better
  • Chronic cough
If you experience symptoms and signs of thyroid cancer, it is important to seek medical attention. Early detection of thyroid cancer may improve prognosis. Talk to your doctor, or request an appointment at Florida Hospital today.
