Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer Treatment

The thyroid gland’s follicular cells can give rise to an uncommon and dangerous type of thyroid cancer called anaplastic thyroid carcinoma. Due to the cancer cells’ extreme abnormality and inability to mimic normal thyroid cells under the microscope, it is also known as undifferentiated thyroid carcinoma.

Anaplastic thyroid cancer frequently invades the lymph nodes, lungs, and bones and spreads quickly throughout the body.

The prognosis is typically bad because it is typically discovered at an advanced stage when cancer has already spread to other organs.

Although the precise origin of anaplastic thyroid cancer is uncertain, it is thought to be related to genetic abnormalities and radiation exposure. A lump or enlargement in the neck, trouble breathing or swallowing, hoarseness, and weight loss are possible symptoms.

Radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and surgery are all possible forms of treatment for anaplastic thyroid cancer. Unfortunately, these therapies frequently have poor efficacy, and anaplastic thyroid cancer survival rates are typically low. In order to increase the likelihood of survival, early detection and treatment are crucial.
