Thyroid Cancer Diagnosis

Usually, thyroid cancer can be diagnosed by inserting a needle into a thyroid nodule. The surgeon can also remove a mutated thyroid nodule. Then, a pathologist examines the extracted thyroid nodule with a microscope. The pathologist then determines if the nodule is benign or non-cancerous.

Almost all nodules are biopsied and of these, malignant nodules are a fraction. The pathologist then informs a patient about the type of thyroid cancer i.e. if the cancer is papillary, follicular, medullary, or anaplastic.

Random Useful Tip:
Epinephrine shot
If you are known to have a severe anaphylactic reaction, carry an epinephrine (adrenaline) shot with you at all times. Pay attention to expiration date and replace it regularly: upon expiration, it loses its effectiveness.

Random Drug Info:
Acyclovir is a medication that is used to treat herpes infections of the skin, lips and genitals, chicken pox and shingles. It comes in the form of ointments, tablets, capsules or liquids. It relieves pain and itchiness and promotes healing; however, it does not cure the condition. Possible (but not common) side effects include headaches, upset stomach, vomiting and diarrhea. Severe side effects, such as severe rash or itching, blood in the urine, stomach pain or fever are even less common, but require prompt medical attention.
