There was a recent report about an increase in thyroid issues, especially in women. Perhaps this is due to better ways to detect nodules on a thyroid. Some growths on the thyroid are not cancer while others are.
Suspicious nodules need to be followed up with a biopsy. Early detection is key. A person can live without a thyroid, assuming the proper medication is given. However, the spread of thyroid cancer can be life threatening.
