"September Is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month - Mount Sinai Promotes Early Detection and Shares Tips For Prevention"
September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month, and doctors in the Mount Sinai Health System are promoting early detection by encouraging high-risk groups to be aware of symptoms. “While the overall prognosis for the majority of thyroid cancers is excellent, early diagnosis and treatment are critical to improve survival and decrease the risk of future recurrence,” said Brett Miles, MD, DDS, professor and co-chief of the division of head and neck oncology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “Although most thyroid cancers are highly treatable, the extent of treatment can be minimized when they are identified at earlier stages,” said Raymond Chai, MD, assistant professor of otolaryngology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. “Thyroid cancer can affect people of all ages, and although it is more common in women, men can also be affected,” said Catherine Sinclair, MD, director of head and neck surgery at Mount Sinai West
