Thyroid Cancer Treatment

Access exceptional care for thyroid gland cancer at Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center. As one of the first NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers, for more than 50 years, we've been a leader in the research, diagnosis and treatment of over 200 types of cancer.  

If you’re diagnosed with thyroid cancer, rest assured that Montefiore Einstein Comprehensive Cancer Center offers specialized, advanced care to help you reach your best outcome. Benefit from a comprehensive treatment plan personalized to you from a multidisciplinary team of dedicated thyroid cancer experts using the latest technology and techniques. 

Thyroid cancer is very treatable. Your care team may recommend and perform surgery to remove the thyroid gland, followed by safe and effective radioactive iodine treatment, which targets thyroid cancer cells and lowers your risk of the disease coming back. You’ll receive compassionate support every step of the way, as well as long-term monitoring of your health to catch and treat any cancer if it returns. After five years of monitoring, more than 95% of patients are considered cured and need no further treatment. 

You also benefit from our ongoing research into new, innovative treatments. If you choose to participate in one of our cutting-edge cancer clinical trials, you may receive promising new treatments before they’re widely available. 

When you need thyroid cancer care, turn to our providers who are passionate about ending cancer and addressing your whole health needs.
