New Flyers Raise Awareness of Thyroid Cancer

Early detection of all types of thyroid cancer is one of the goals of ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors’ Association, Inc., because treatment for early-stage thyroid cancer is usually simple and has a high rate of success.

Two new downloadable flyers, titled “Find it Early” and “Know the Signs,” highlight this theme. ThyCa volunteers who are thyroid cancer survivors and caregivers developed the new flyers. These new flyers are available on ThyCa’s web site.

Additional thyroid cancer awareness and educational materials are also available from ThyCa free of charge. Items include the thyroid cancer awareness brochures with actress Catherine Bell, ThyCa’s patient services brochures (“Do you have thyroid cancer?”), handy wallet cards, fact sheets, and the free downloadable Low-Iodine Cookbook.
