Depends on the stage: These are fairly uncommon but very aggressive cancers that originate in the thyroid gland, but act much differently than the majority of thyroid cancers, which tend to have an excellent prognosis. If it is not completely localized, a combination of radiation and chemotherapy is usually used.

Smallbutsignificant: A lump in the breast is the most common presenting sign of breast cancer, so one must never assume it's benign without working it up. That said, often they are benign. Btw while scans and radiological procedures are very useful in working up breast cancers, a lump which can be felt needs to be biopsied regardless of a normal mammogram.

Usually: All oncologists follow proven guidelines (usually nccn or asco), so the treatment for any cancer should be pretty much the same in portland, oregon or portland, maine. Some centers may have experimental protocols available, but one must remember they haven't been proven to be better or as good, or they would be the nccn standard.
