I am really proud to be the chairperson of the Thyroid Cancer Support Group Wales – we are the only designated charity in Wales supporting this particular form of cancer.
We meet at Velindre Cancer Centre, Cardiff and have regular meetings to discuss how we can make a difference in the lives of those people diagnosed with this rare form of cancer. We also offer help and support to their families too – one person may be diagnosed with thyroid cancer but there are many people willing to help in the fight against this disease.
This website has been set up for the benefit of new and existing patients.
It has been developed by Dr Laura Moss, (former) Consultant Oncologist at the Velindre Cancer Centre, Whitchurch, Cardiff. It provides a concise summary of thyroid cancer and answers many questions that patients may have.
Thyroid Cancer Forum- UK (TCF-UK) is a national organisation that facilitates communication, education, research and data collection between consultants and scientists working in the thyroid cancer field. There is also a website accessible to anyone that provides general information on thyroid cancer as well as links to other information sources.
Where is the Thyroid Gland?
The thyroid gland sits in the front of the neck just below the voice box (larynx). It is made up of 2 main lobes (right and left) joined across the middle by a thinner strip called the isthmus. There is also a much smaller pyramidal lobe in some people. The gland is butterfly or bow tie shaped.
