This is a single-authored, authoritative, readable volume covering all aspects of thyroid cancer. The text is supplemented with many illustrations including pathology, thyroid and whole-body scans, ultrasounds and other nuclear medicine and radiological studies and highlights important questions that patients should ask their physicians, indicating the topics the physician should cover. The text is designed for physicians, including primary care doctors, endocrinologists, nuclear medicine physicians, general and head and neck surgeons, oncologists and radiation oncologists.
