  • Roberta S. Perry and Johns Hopkins endocrinologist and thyroid cancer specialist Douglas Ball. MD

    September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month - Get a Neck Check

    Thyroid cancer is still considered to be an uncommon cancer. It is estimated that there will be close to 53K new cases this year which is only 2.9 percent of all new cancer cases in 2020. Thyroid cancer has a high five-year survival rate, about 98.3 percent and accounts for only 2.4 percent of all cancer deaths.

    Early detection is key. Do a neck check or ask your doctor to do one. If you are diagnosed, THyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association has incredible free resources and an upcoming virtual conference with more than 45 physicians, researchers and clinicians to help you understand your disease and what to expect over the long haul.

    While the cancer treatment may be simple, living without a thyroid and keeping the disease at bay may be very challenging. Many people don't know what the thyroid does. Sometimes called the master gland, it produces hormones that influence every cell and tissue in the body. It regulates the body's metabolic rate controlling heart, muscle and digestive function, brain development and bone maintenance. When it is removed, replacement hormone is given and is generally hard to regulate. Can it be true that one pill can do the same thing as an entire gland?

    It's important to find the best care team, one with whom you can partner and be an active participant; clinicians who don't dismiss your symptoms in favor of treating your tested blood levels. Seven-year survivor, Roberta Perry, CNHP's assistant director of marketing and communications, found her team at Johns Hopkins Medicine where she just had her annual follow-up with her endocrinologist, Douglas Ball, MD.
