The exact cause of thyroid cancer is not known.
Your cancer will be assessed (staged) to determine how severe it is and how much it has spread.
Most thyroid cancers are treated with surgery to remove most or all of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy). In some cases, the lymph nodes in the neck that are close to the thyroid may also be removed during surgery. Lymph nodes are part of the body's disease-fighting (immune) system, and they are usually the first place that cancer spreads to.
