|Prognosis of Thyroid Cancer|

What is the prognosis (outcome and life expectancy) for thyroid cancer?
This depends mostly on the type and stage of cancer one is diagnosed with.
Medullary carcinoma is more difficult to treat and is more aggressive then papillary and follicular carcinoma. The ten year survivor rate is still high though.
Anaplastic is a very aggressive thyroid carcinoma and has a poor prognosis. Typically, once diagnosis the survivor rate is less than 2 years.
Refer to SURVIVOR RATES for detailed statistics.
