Thyroid cancer is cancer of the thyroid gland. Cancer occurs when cells in the body divide without control or order.
Normally, cells divide in a regulated manner. If cells keep dividing uncontrollably when new cells are not needed, a mass of tissue forms, called a growth or tumor.
The thyroid, which is found in the front of the neck, makes thyroid hormone. Thyroid gland tumors often appear as bumps in the neck, called nodules.
In most cases, thyroid nodules are not cancerous. Those that are cancerous have the potential to spread throughout the body.
