September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month
Connie recently completed another whole body scan to monitor her thyroid cancer. I really enjoy connecting with others online who have been through this journey and wanted to share some facts.

• Thyroid cancer is the fastest increasing cancer in both men and women. It is the most common endocrine cancer.
• It occurs in all age groups, mainly adults. It affects about three times as many women as men.
• There are several types—papillary, follicular, medullary, anaplastic, and variants.
• Thyroid cancer is one of the few cancers that has increased in incidence in recent years. It has become the 5th most common cancer in women.
• About 56,460 people, including 43,210 women and 13,250 men, will be diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2012 in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. About 1,000 women and 780 men (1,780 total) will die of thyroid cancer in 2012.
Signs to discuss with your physician
• You feel a lump in your neck, or your doctor or dentist may notice a nodule in your neck during a routine checkup. Most of these thyroid nodules are benign (noncancerous).
• Some people first notice lymph node swellings, fullness in the neck, voice changes, or difficulty breathing or swallowing.
