There are different types of thyroid cancer. We have information about the most common type, the papillary thyroid cancer, as well as rarer types.
This is a less common type of thyroid cancer. It is mostly found in middle-aged people.
Together papillary and follicular thyroid cancer are sometimes called differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC). About 9 in 10 thyroid cancers (90%) are DTC. They are often treated in the same way. Most people with DTC are cured.
