Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Not usually.: Thyroid cancer grows outside of the windpipe and therefore almost never causes a productive cough. However, in the extremely rare event that it invades the windpipe this could result in a productive, possibly bloood tinged cough.

Yes and No.: Thyroid Cancer itself does not cause hypothyroidism or symptoms of hypothyroidism. Most people with thyroid cancer will have NO symptoms at all; some may have a lump in the lower neck, trouble swallowing, or hoarseness. Treatment for thyroid cancer (surgery to remove the thyroid) will cause hypothyroidism, but with proper treatment, there should be no symptoms. ...Read more
Not in humans: Hi. In rodents, Victoza (liraglutide) (and all GLP-1 receptor agonists) can cause C-cell hyperplasia and MEDULLARY thyroid cancer (MTC), NOT regular thyroid cancer (papillary or follicular); ergo the black box warning. MTC is a VERY rare form of thyroid cancer seen in a few genetic syndromes and vanishingly rarely sporadically outside of those syndromes. In humans, there are no data the GLP-1's do that. ...Read more

No.: Sweet 'n' low, which is made from saccharin, has never been shown to cause thyroid cancer, in man or in animals. There was some concern in the past that it can cause another type of cancer at very high doses in animal studies, but this was apparently disproven in primates and in fact saccharin has been removed as a potential carcinogen in several government lists. ...Read more
No Simple Answer: It is likely due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors, both of which are not well understood at this time. In most patients, we do not know why they developed thyroid cancer. In occasional cases, the cause can be traced back to something specific (i.e. Prior exposure to radiation therapy to the neck or to other sources of radiation). ...Read more
What can cause TSH levels to rise when taking the same dose of medication for months, with a history of thyroid cancer and no thyroid?
Might need more: Tsh is made by your body to stimulate your thyroid to produce hormones. Tsh stimulates thyroid cancer, too, so the medicine you take is to keep your TSH level as low as possible. The fact that your TSH has risen might be a sign that you need to take a higher dose of your medication. This is something you should ask your doctor about! ...Read more
