It is a real stretch: Headaches are very common and thyroid cancer is not. Thyroid cancer generally does not chane thyroid hormone early on and doesnt have many symptoms other than lumbs. Worry about thyroid cancer is probalby much more associated iwth headache.

Headaches and thy ca: Headaches are common. Thyroid cancer is not. Thyroid cancer causing headaches directly through a metastasis is EXCEEDINGLY uncommon.
