Clinical trials of new therapeutic approaches being further evaluated in carefully controlled studies may sometimes be appropriate for people with thyroid cancer. Researchers have compiled a database of information collected over several decades from people who have been treated for thyroid cancer at Mayo Clinic.
The thyroid research group at Mayo Clinic is actively working on issues such as:
- Genes involved with thyroid tumor development
- Risk factors associated with thyroid cancer
- Minimally invasive and robotic thyroid surgery
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic doctors on thyroid cancer on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
