Thyroid and Parathyroid Cancer

Whether you have malignant thyroid or parathyroid cancer or benign hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, goiter or benign thyroid nodules, rest assured that the experts at Roswell Park Cancer Institute are here for you.

We use the most advanced techniques to treat your disease effectively with the smallest incisions and fewest side effects possible.

The BlueCross BlueShield Association has named Roswell Park a Blue Distinction Center for Complex and Rare CancersĀ® for providing superior care for medullary and anaplastic thyroid cancer. We are one of only four centers in New York State to have earned this designation.

Roswell Park is a high-volume center for both thyroid and parathyroid surgery, and studies show that patients enjoy better outcomes at centers that perform a high number of procedures.

Our thyroid/parathyroid physicians are among the experts who develop the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines that prescribe the best ways of preventing, detecting, and treating specific types of cancer. The NCCN Guidelines are the most widely used standards in both the United States and abroad.
