Overview

M. Sara Rosenthal, Ph.D., bestselling author of The Thyroid Sourcebook (recommended by The New York Times), The Thyroid Sourcebook for Women and The Hypothyroid Sourcebook has just published The Thyroid Cancer Book, the only consumer book to date devoted to thyroid cancer. A thyroid cancer survivor herself, Rosenthal wrote the book she wishes she'd had when diagnosed in 1983.

The Thyroid Cancer Book explains all forms of thyroid cancer and its treatment in plain language. It was written in consultation with the leading medical experts on thyroid cancer in North America, and is the only book of its kind in the world. It includes extensive information on:

  • Significant risk factors for developing the disease, and how to find and investigate lumps in the neck
  • Papillary and follicular thyroid cancers, as well as the less common medullary and anaplastic cancers
  • Treatment options, surgery and radioactive iodine
  • Post-treatment follow up, whole body scans and Thyrogen
  • Self-healing and complementary therapies
  • The emotional impact of cancer on families and loved ones
  • Palliative care

While thyroid cancer accounts for roughly two percent of all cancers, it's among the fastest growing cancers in incidence. Its causes in North America are associated with fallout from nuclear testing in the American midwest, and environmental causes which Rosenthal also writes about in detail.

Recommended by Johns Hopkins Thyroid Tumor Center, The Thyroid Foundation of America, The American Foundation for Thyroid Patients, The Thyroid Foundation of Canada, CancerHelpUK, and thyroid cancer patients from both Thyca and Thry'Vors.

In the tradition of her bestselling thyroid sourcebooks, Dr. Rosenthal has written the definitive book on thyroid cancer. She takes the reader through the spectrum of thyroid cancer from warning signs and risk factors through diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Patients newly diagnosed with thryoid cancer and those in remission will become empowered as they learn what questions to ask at appointments and what they can do to help themselves heal.
