About thyroid cancer

The thyroid is a small gland in the front of your neck just below your voicebox (larynx). It is part of the endocrine system. This system makes hormones that help to control and influence the way your body functions.

There are different types of thyroid cancer. Our booklet is about the most common types of thyroid cancer, which are called papillary and follicular thyroid cancer.

If you would like information about other types of thyroid cancer, contact the Macmillan support line on 0808 808 00 00.
