  1. Radioiodine RAI has been linked to causing cancer of the blood forming cells such as Leukemia.
  2. Recent evidence has shown that RAI has no use in low risk thyroid cancer.
  3. RAI was given to every thyroid cancer patient over the first 70 years of use.
  4. Recent study has shown that RAI causes expansion of mutant clones that lead to pre-cancer.
  5. These mutants clones can also make thyroid cancer more aggressive as well as cause later onset of leukemia.
  6. What can you do to avoid RAI if you do not need it to treat your thyroid cancer?
  7. Don’t rush into RAI right after the surgery.
  8. Stop after the surgery and pause to heal from the surgery and to take time to get outside second opinions to see if the recommended RAI is really necessary.
