This week: Thyroid cancer on the rise; and prostate cancer update

Jul 17, 2018

The incidence of thyroid cancer is on the rise, partly because more cases are discovered incidentally when a patient undergoes testing for something unrelated, says Dr. Roberto Izquierdo, medical director of the thyroid center and the thyroid cancer program at Upstate.

He discusses treatment and the outlook for people with thyroid cancer on this week’s “HealthLink on Air.” He also goes over symptoms of an overactive and an underactive thyroid, cautioning that symptoms vary among individuals and tend to develop gradually.

Also on this week’s show: an update on prostate cancer. Tune in this Sunday, July 22 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. on WRVO.
