A 51-year-old member asked:
Could you tell me if someone has thyroid cancer wouldn't the CBC blood test show that something was abnormal?

Cancer: Likely not. The cancer if it spread would likely just affect local structures. Ultrasound is the best method to detect it. Certain lab tests screen for certain types of thyroid cancer.
