👉In thyroid cancer does not cause any symptoms most of the time in the initial stages, but as it grows it can cause:

  • A lump (nodule) that can be felt through the skin of the neck
  • Voice changes, including increasing hoarseness
  • Difficulty to swallow
  • Pain in the neck and throat
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck

  • Follicular thyroid cancer.
  • Anaplastic thyroid cancer.
  • Medullary thyroid cancer.
