Tiffany Marie talks with Catherine Sinclair, MD, assistant professor of otolaryngology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and director of The Division of Head and Neck Surgery at Mount Sinai West for Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month.  Dr. Sinclair says that thyroid cancer is usually first suspected either on physical examination by a physician or through ultrasound.   Definitive diagnosis for thyroid cancer is made with a fine needle biopsy, usually with ultrasound guidance.  Most thyroid cancers are very curable with appropriate treatment.  However, the risk for recurrent disease can be high and careful monitoring must be performed by a medical professional after treatment.
