Depends: Papillary thyroid cancer is not directly related to thyroid cancer. Patient's require radioiodine treatment for papillary thyroid cancer, and these can be associated with infertility issues and early onset of premature menopause in some patients.Patient's with premature menopause need to discuss with her healthcare providers for possible hormone replacement.
