Thyroid Cancer


A rare type of cancer that affects the thyroid gland (a small gland at the base of the neck), thyroid cancer results in a range of symptoms. There are four main types of thyroid cancer; they are:

  • Papillary Carcinoma – The most common type of thyroid cancer, accounting for 4 out of 5 cases; it usually affects people under 40 years of age, particularly women
  • Follicular Carcinoma – This type accounts for around 1 in 10 cases of thyroid cancer and tends to affect older adults
  • Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma – Accounting for around 1 in 20 cases, medullary thyroid carcinoma can run in families
  • Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma – This is the rarest and most aggressive type of thyroid cancer, accounting for 1 in 100 cases and with most cases affecting older people aged 60-80 years

The most common symptom of thyroid cancer is a painless lump or swelling that develops in the neck, while other symptoms only tend to occur after the condition has reached an advanced stage. They include:

  • Unexplained hoarseness
  • Difficulty breathing and swallowing
  • Pain in the neck

There are a number of risk factors that can increase your chance of developing thyroid cancer. Having a particular risk factor doesn’t mean you’ll definitely get cancer. However, sometimes people without any known risk factors can develop cancer.

People who have certain non-cancerous (benign) thyroid diseases are slightly more likely to develop thyroid cancer. These include:

  • An enlarged thyroid (goitre)
  • Thyroid nodules (adenomas)
  • Inflammation of the thyroid (thyroiditis).

About one in five thyroid cancers (20%) occur in people who have had a benign thyroid disease in the past, and benign thyroid disease can run in families. You are more at risk of getting thyroid cancer if you have family members with benign thyroid disease and the risk is higher still if more than one member is affected.

Exposure to radiation may also be a risk factor; this may be due to radiotherapy | treatment given to the neck area in childhood (for example, enlarged tonsils were treated with radiation before the 1960s). Radiotherapy in childhood to treat a cancer like lymphoma can also increase a person’s risk of developing thyroid cancer many years later. Exposure to high levels of radiation in the environment – for example, in the areas surrounding Chernobyl in the Ukraine following the nuclear power explosion of 1986 – can also increase the risk.

It is worth noting, however, that a small number of thyroid cancers are caused by radiation exposure.

It’s also thought that people who are overweight may have a higher risk of getting thyroid cancer. A healthy diet and regular exercise may reduce the risk.

A patient with thyroid cancer may find it beneficial to stick to a low-iodine diet, which in most cases, is not followed for more than two weeks. During this period, consumption of items, such as iodised salt, seafood, agar-agar (an additive used in ice cream and canned fish), alginate (a thickening agent used in dairy beverages and cream), carrageenan, egg yolks, commercial breads, fish, soybeans, beans, red dye (canned fruits and vegetables contain it) and iodine-containing vitamins must be avoided – many of these are common additives and are mentioned on labels of food items.
Feel free to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables (except spinach) in your low-iodine diet. According to the University of Pennsylvania, fresh potatoes with no skin, small quantity of homemade rice (not from a packaged mix), pasta with no added salt or eggs, puffed rice, hot cereals, such as oatmeal without added salt, can be incorporated. One to two slices of bread with not more than 20mg of total sodium content can also be consumed.

Patients following alow-iodine diet may drink coffee, tea and water, but beverages containing red dye, such as canned fruit juices and canned milk-related beverages should be avoided.

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.


  • Selenium – In order for T4 to get converted to T3, an enzyme that contains selenium is necessary. As a result, a deficiency in selenium can affect this conversion process, and thus impair thyroid function. You can obtain all the senenium you need by consuming one ounce of raw brazil nuts every day. Garlic is also a good source of selenium.
  • B Vitamins – Taking B Vitamins is also important for optimal thyroid health. Like magnesium, taking B vitamins is important for anyone supplementing with iodine. The reason for this is because the B Vitamins (specifically B2 and B3) help with the utilization of iodine at the cellular level. For those people with a thyroid condition who are not iodine deficient, it still is a good idea to take B vitamins on a daily basis.
  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details herekevintrudeaudailylifesessentials.com/
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil


Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.
