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 has accumulated decades of experience in the management of these diseases.
Neoplasms of the endocrine glands, in addition to having the characteristics of any tumor, are based on a tissue with the capacity to produce hormones. For this reason, their diagnosis and treatment can be complex and requires dual attention: the management of the tumor and the monitoring of the endocrinological changes that are caused.
All this requires specific management under the careful attention of a multidisciplinary team that is familiar with the physiology of the endocrine system.
This team is made up of specialists in Endocrinology, Medical Oncology, Surgery, Radiation Oncology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiology, Pathological Anatomy, Otolaryngology and Biochemistry.

PREVENTION AND PERSONALIZED TREATMENT
Comprehensive patient care
From the first visit, the best diagnostic and therapeutic strategy is defined. Tumors of endocrine origin, especially thyroid cancer, require personalized attention that allows an accurate diagnosis (including in many cases a molecular diagnosis) in order to adapt the intensity of treatment to the aggressiveness of the disease. This leads to the most appropriate recommendation either from active surveillance, surgical treatment (both its indication and extent), indication of radioiodine, systemic therapy or inclusion in clinical trials.
Professionals from different specialities are able to offer each patient the best therapeutic alternative thanks to their coordinated work.
