Datamonitor Healthcare Oncology: Thyroid Cancer Market Spotlight
September 03, 2019Thyroid cancer is caused by the abnormal growth of cells in the thyroid gland tissues, forming a tumor. It is the fifth most common malignancy among females. According to the American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates, in 2019 it is projected that there will be 52,070 new cases of thyroid cancer in the US (37,810 cases in women, and 14,260 cases in men). Patients with thyroid cancer may experience few or no symptoms, although known symptoms of the disease include swelling of the glands in the neck, throat or neck pain, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing and breathing, continuous cough (that is not due to a cold), and lumps in the front part of the neck around the Adam’s apple.
