Childhood thyroid cancer

In recent years, there has been a high incidence of thyroid cancer, including among children. In 76% of cases, a papillary type of thyroid cancer is detected, which develops relatively slowly. The follicular type is characterized by a more aggressive manifestation and accounts for 31% of all detected cases of a papillary type of tumor in childhood. However, in Israeli clinics, doctors own a sufficient amount of modern equipment and have extensive experience in the treatment of childhood thyroid cancer, provide services at the highest level, increasing the percentage of children cured.

Risk factors for abnormal growth of thyroid cells in children include iodine deficiency, increased radiation levels, previous irradiation of the child's head and neck area, nodular goiter, and the use of antithyroid drugs (pituitary hormones).

Thyroid cancer in children: progressive diagnostic methods

Diagnosis of thyroid tumors, like other diseases, in Israeli clinics is a consistent coordinated process that gives an absolutely accurate result without the slightest probability of errors in research. On the first day of visiting the clinic, the attending physician gets acquainted with the child's medical history, examines him and prescribes an examination schedule, including such procedures as:

  • a detailed blood test;
  • physical examination ;
  • Ultrasound, biopsy, Doppler;
  • endoscopic examination;
  • PET-CT diagnostics;
  • examination of thyroid hormones in a child (level thyroglobulin, cancer-embryonic antigen, calcitonin - a specific tumor marker).

This is an approximate list of diagnostic procedures for examining children with thyroid cancer. The feasibility of conducting specific research for a child is determined by the doctor on an individual basis. Based on the diagnostic results, oncologists, surgeons, chemotherapists, endocrinologists, radiologists and other narrow specialists jointly decide on methods of treating a small patient at an affordable price.

At this stage, the total cost of treating a child is negotiated. The price formation is influenced by the results of diagnostics, the clinical picture of cancer, while the cost of services can be paid in a convenient way, dividing it into parts.
