September is Thyroid Cancer Awareness Important, surgery isn’t always necessary for treating thyroid cancer. In fact: as many as one in three people have thyroid cancer and do not die from it, rather, with it.
In this interview, Dr. Giovanni Mauri, an interventional radiologist specializing in ablation for the treatment of various conditions including thyroid cancer, shares his insights with Philip James on the Doctor Thyroid and RFAMD podcasts.

He advises every patient diagnosed with thyroid cancer to be aware that ablation is a valid treatment option. He emphasizes the importance for both physicians and patients to know that this option exists, and encourages patients to seek advice about the possibility of being treated by ablation instead of surgery.
