ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association, Inc., is pleased to have provided grants in support of the development of some of ATA's thyroid cancer management guidelines.

Differentiated Thyroid Cancer (Papillary, Follicular, Variants):

Differentiated Thyroid Cancer: Papillary, Follicular, Variants

The American Thyroid Association Guidelines Taskforce developed these Management Guidelines for Patients with Thyroid Nodules and Differentiated Thyroid Cancer, published in 2009. The guidelines cover the testing of thyroid nodules and the management of differentiated thyroid cancer (papillary, follicular, and variants).

Topics include testing of nodules, diagnosis, surgery, staging, radioiodine ablation, post-therapy scans, TSH levels, thyroglobulin testing, the use of ultrasound, RAI scans, other imaging techniques, management of metastatic thyroid cancer, and many other topics.

The thyroid cancer specialists who developed the guidelines include many ThyCa medical advisors and conference and workshop speakers. We encourage you to print out these guidelines for your reference.
