Most cases of thyroid cancer are diagnosed before the cancer becomes life-threatening. Once the diagnosis is made, medical tests and treatment can be very expensive and debilitating.

Diagnosis

Janumet thyroid cancer diagnosis may require the following tests:

  • Physical examination: It is not unusual for small, slow-growing thyroid tumors to go unnoticed until a doctor performs a physical examination of the thyroid gland. Because the thyroid gland is located just under the skin in the front-lower part of the neck, a growing tumor may form a lump or “nodule” on the neck.
  • Blood tests: Thyroid cancer produces certain bio-markers that can be detected in the bloodstream, like thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). This can help a doctor make a Janumet thyroid cancer diagnosis or test for recurrent thyroid cancer after treatment.
  • Imaging tests
    • Ultrasound
    • Computed tomography (CT) scan
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Biopsy: The only way to be sure about a Janumet thyroid cancer diagnosis is with a tissue sample (biopsy) that is examined under a microscope by a pathologist.
    • Ultrasound-guided needle biopsy: If thyroid cancer is suspected, the doctor will need to take a tissue sample. One minimally-invasive technique uses a hollow needle, which is guided into the thyroid gland with an ultrasound.

If you or your family member had a Janumet thyroid cancer diagnosis, it is important to go through appropriate medical care and treatment for this disease. Unfortunately, cancer treatments are often extensive, time-consuming, debilitating, and costly.
