Essential facts

Thyroid cancer is comparatively rare. There are about 3,400 new cases in the UK every year, according to Cancer Research UK, accounting for 1% of all new cancer diagnoses. Of patients diagnosed in England, 85% survive for ten years or more. Differentiated thyroid cancers (DTCs) account for nine out of ten cases, while medullary thyroid cancer (MTC), which can be inherited, is more rare.
