In brief: Usually none

Thyroid cancers can spread to lymph nodes in the neck, lungs, or bones.
It can spread to other areas but it's rare for it to spread to the kidneys. When it spreads to the lungs, it does not usually cause symptoms until late in the course of the disease. If you have concerns, please talk to your thyroid surgeon or endocrinologist.
