Homeopathy Treatment of Thyroid Cancer


Thyroid cancer is a malignancy (cancerous growth) of the thyroid gland.
Alternative Names Tumor - thyroid; Cancer - thyroid
Causes, incidence, and risk factors 
Thyroid cancer can occur in all age groups. People who have had Radiation therapy to the neck are at higher risk. This therapy was commonly used in the 1950s to treat enlarged thymus glands, adenoids and tonsils, and Skin disorders. People who received radiation therapy as children have a higher incidence of thyroid cancer
. Other risk factors are a family history of thyroid cancer and chronic goiter. The disease affects 1 in 1,000 people. There are several types of thyroid cancer:
  • Papillary carcinoma is the most common and usually affects women of child-bearing age. It metastasizes (spreads from the original site) slowly and is the least malignant type of thyroid cancer.
  • Follicular carcinoma accounts for about 30% of all cases and has a greater rate of recurrence and metastasis.
  • Medullary carcinoma is a cancer of non-thyroid cells in the thyroid gland and tends to occur in families. It requires different treatment from other types of thyroid cancer.
  • Anaplastic carcinoma (also called giant and spindle cell cancer) is the most malignant form of thyroid cancer. It is rare, but does not respond to radioiodine therapy. Anaplastic carcinoma metastasizes quickly and invades nearby structures such as the trachea, causing compression and Breathing difficulties.
Symptoms
  • Enlargement of the thyroid gland
  • Neck swelling
  • A thyroid nodule
  • Hoarseness or changing voice
  • Cough or cough with bleeding
  • Difficulty swallowing
Note: Symptoms may vary depending on the type of thyroid cancer

Signs and tests
A physical examination can reveal a thyroid mass or nodule (usually in the lower part of the front of the neck), or enlarged lymph nodes in the neck.
Tests that indicate thyroid cancer:
  • Thyroid biopsy showing anaplastic, follicular, medullary or papillary cancer cells
  • Ultrasound of the thyroid showing a nodul
  • Thyroid scan showing cold nodule (a nodule that does not light up on scan)
  • Larynoscopy showing paralyzed vocal cords
  • Elevated serum calcitonin (for medullary cancer) or serum thyroglobulin (for papillary or follicular cancer)
This disease may also alter the results of the following tests:
  • T4
  • T3
  • TSH
Treatment
Thyroid Cancer cures homeopathy treatment is 80% successive case to cure completely. Main use Cal.Carb,Cal. Flor, Ferr.metallicum, Thyroidinum, Carcinosin, give according Dr Abul Kasem. Advice.
Expectations (prognosis) 
Anaplastic carcinoma has the worst prognosis (probable outcome) of all the types of thyroid cancer, and has an expected life span of less than 6 months after diagnosis. Follicular carcinoma are often fast growing and may invade other tissues, but the probable outcome is still good -- over 90% of patients are cured.
The outcome with medullary carcinoma varies. Women under 40 years old have a better chance of a good outcome. The cure rate is 40-50%.
Papillary carcinomas are usually slower growing. Most people are cured (over 95%) and have a normal life expectancy.
Complications
  • Low calcium levels from inadvertent removal of the parathyroid glands during surgery
  • Injury to the voice box or nerve and hoarseness after surgery
  • Spread of the cancer to the lung or other parts of the body
Prevention 

There is no known prevention. Awareness of risk (such as previous radiation therapy) can allow earlier diagnosis and treatment.
