Thyroid Cancer and Endocrine Tumors
"Having a multidisciplinary, experienced and coordinated team is important in any pathology. In thyroid cancer, it is more than important, it is vital".
DR. JUAN CARLOS GALOFRÉ FERRATER COORDINATOR. THYROID CANCER AND ENDOCRINE TUMORS AREA
The Thyroid Cancer and Endocrine Tumors Area of the Cancer Center Clínica Universidad de Navarra is one of the first units created in Spain for the multidisciplinary treatment of thyroid cancer and pituitary and adrenal tumors.
These neoplasms, which originate in the endocrine glands, in addition to having the characteristics of all tumors, are based on tissue with the capacity to produce hormones. For this reason, their diagnosis and treatment requires attention and monitoring of the endocrinological changes they cause. Their functional capacity also requires specific management under the careful attention of a multidisciplinary team familiar with the physiology of the endocrine system.
The area offers the highest quality and personalized assistance from diagnosis to cure of the disease endorsed by highly qualified specialists in Endocrinology, Medical Oncology, Surgery, Radiation Oncology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiology, Pathological Anatomy, Otorhinolaryngology and Biochemistry.
This complete vision of the oncological disease has made it possible to achieve a high impact on the quality of care offered to patients thanks to the issuance of an accurate diagnosis that leads to personalized recommendations on the most appropriate therapeutic approach, whether from active surveillance, surgical treatment (both its indication and its extension), the indication of radioiodine, as well as the initiation of systemic therapy.
When necessary, the diagnosis is completed with molecular studies that are useful for the selection of the appropriate clinical trial for each patient.
