Do papillary and follicular thyroid cancers secrete thyroglobulin?

Yes: All cells of thyroid origin secrete thyroglobulin. Measuring it to follow a cancer ONLY makes since if the whole thyroid has been removed. If you have anti thyroglobulin antibodies, that makes thyroglobulin measurements unreliable. However, rising or decreasing anti thyroglobulin antibodies can be a proxy for thyroglobulin measurements. ...Read more

Can follicular adenoma thyroid nodules be serious?

Can  follicular adenoma thyroid nodules be serious?

Yes.: A follicular adenoma may be a wolf in sheep's clothing, because cells from follicular adenomas and follicular carcinomas can look the same. Other follicular adenomas may have almost no chance of being cancers, but overproduce thyroid hormone, and need treatment to prevent harmful effects of hyperthyroidism on the bones, heart and other tissues. ...Read more

Is follicular thyroid carcinoma treatable?

Is follicular thyroid carcinoma treatable?

Very treatable: Surgical resection always needed but depending on size of lesion, proximity to isthmus and whether nodes seen on scan procedure of choice decided on. Under 30 years of age lesion very curable even in face of nodes. Over 50 I find surgery may be difficult because of invasion occasionally into larynx and carotid artery. If surgery effective may need p.o. RT. ...Read more

Lung nodules are non specific and can be from some infections but also metastatic disease sometimes from papillary thyroid cancer. You may want to consult a geneticist physician. ...Read more

Can metastatic papillary thyroid cancer spread to the parathyroid? Is this rare? Can recurrent pap thyroid cancer show up on parathyroid?

Can metastatic papillary thyroid cancer spread to the parathyroid? Is this rare? Can recurrent pap thyroid cancer show up on parathyroid?

parathyroid: Presumably you have had surgery followed by radioactive iodine. This could damage the parathyroid and cause hypoparathyroidism, although this usually does not happen. Thyroid cancer spreads locally (within the neck), and that could damage the parathyroids more, but again, this does not usually happen. Check this out with your endocrinologist. ...Read more
