Variable: Signs and symptoms depend on the type and stage of thyroid cancer. Most thyroid cancers do not cause much symptoms or signs in the early stages. The commonest sign would a lump in the neck. You may consult this site for info: http://www.webmd.com/cancer/tc/thyroid-cancer-topic-overview#1 For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
