Poorly Differentiated Thyroid Cancer Support

Meets: The ThyCa Poorly Differentiated Support Group holds free virtual meetings on the second Saturday of each month at Noon to 1:30 pm Eastern Time. This group discusses topics of interest regarding people who have been diagnosed with poorly differentiated thyroid cancer.

Note: The October meeting of the Poorly Differentiated Support Group has been canceled so that people can attend the annual ThyCa Conference.

Poorly differentiated thyroid cancer (PDTC) is an aggressive form of follicular cell derived thyroid cancer with a prognosis intermediate between the often slow growing papillary or follicular thyroid cancers and the rapidly growing often fatal anaplastic thyroid cancer. Note: Not all papillary or follicular cancers are slow growing.

Please email our group facilitator at pdtc@thyca.org for answers to any questions and the instructions on how to join us. Once we give you the instructions, they will be good for all our meetings.

Nothing discussed at a support group should be considered as a replacement for a doctor's care. We do not give medical advice. We do share support and our own experiences. We are each ultimately responsible for our own care.
