Symptoms and Diagnosis

Thyroid cancer hardly causes any symptoms in its early stages and is often only noticed as the tumour grows in size.
Diagnostic sign thyroid cancer

Sufferers notice a growing lump in the thyroid, which places pressure on the gullet (oesophagus) or windpipe (trachea). This can cause problems eating, breathing or talking.
