Thyroid Cancer

Symptoms

Early thyroid cancer often does not cause symptoms. But as it grows, thyroid cancer symptoms may include:

  • A lump, or nodule, in the front of the neck near the Adam's apple

  • Hoarseness or difficulty speaking in a normal voice

  • Swollen lymph nodes, especially in the neck

  • Difficulty swallowing or breathing

  • Pain in the throat or neck

These symptoms are not sure signs of thyroid cancer. An infection, a benign goiter, or another problem also could cause these symptoms. Anyone with these symptoms should see a doctor as soon as possible. Only a doctor can diagnose and treat the problem.
