Thyroid Cancer

Thyroid cancer develops from the tissues of the thyroid gland (the organ at the front of the neck that forms the Adam's apple). At Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Johnston-Willis Hospital, our cancer care team uses the least invasive therapies available to treat thyroid cancer at the earliest stage possible. We’ll create a treatment plan that’s right for you—all in a compassionate, healing environment that is close to home.
