Thyroid Cancer 101: After 9/11
It’s not just lung cancers. It’s lung cancers, breast cancers, esophageal cancers and thyroid cancers, to name a few. These people should be screened and be taken care of.
A case finding thyroid and neck ultrasound in those exposed at 9/11 is needed to find thyroid cancer. Blood tests will not find that you have a nodule. This is not screening as you have an indication for a thyroid evaluation no matter where you live since 9/11.
