Understanding thyroid cancer (follicular and papillary)
About this booklet
The booklet explains what thyroid cancer is, and how it is diagnosed and treated. It also talks about your feelings when you are diagnosed with cancer and has practical advice on dealing with work and finances.
We hope it helps you deal with some of the questions or feelings you may have. We cannot give advice about the best treatment for you. You should talk to your doctor, who knows your medical history.
There are other types of thyroid cancer, including medullary and anaplastic thyroid cancer and thyroid lymphoma. If you would like more information about these, call us free on 0808 808 00 00.
We have included quotes from people who have had thyroid cancer. Some are from Dave, who is on the cover of this booklet. The rest are from healthtalk.org and people who have shared their experiences with us. To share your experience, visit macmillan.org.uk/shareyourstory
