It is a type of cancer that is found in the cells of the thyroid gland. It can be identified as a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the human neck. The thyroid is responsible for producing hormones that regulate heart rate, blood pressure, weight, and also the body temperature.
Thyroid cancer may not lead to the surfacing of any symptoms. But it starts to cause pain as it grows even further. It can even lead to swelling in one’s neck. Thyroid cancer has several types, according to leading researches. Some of these types grow slowly whereas some grow very fast.
Thyroid Cancer does not show any symptoms at first. However, over a period of time, the symptoms start to show on the body. Here are the symptoms of thyroid cancer that Sanjana Sanghi’s character Kizzie had in Dil Bechara:
Any type of cancer is caused when cells of a particular part of the body undergo mutations that do not let the cell die and instead they are allowed to grow and multiply at a high rate. These abnormal cells multiply over time and accumulate together creating cancer. These cancer cells can also spread to other areas of the body.
According to reports by www.webmd.com, thyroid cancer is differentiated on the basis of the type of cells that are found in cancer. One must visit a doctor after experiencing even mild symptoms of cancer. Types of Thyroid cancer include Papillary thyroid cancer, Follicular thyroid cancer, Anaplastic thyroid cancer, and Medullary thyroid cancer.
