Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month


Company: American Thyroid Association
Web site:

Thyroid Cancer Awareness Month promotes the early detection of thyroid issues and awareness to shed light on cancers of thyroid. The thyroid gland produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolic rate as well as heart and digestive function, muscle control, brain development, mood and bone maintenance. Its correct functioning depends on having a good supply of iodine from the diet. Thyroid Cancer Awareness began as a week in September 2000, and in 2003 expanded to the entire month of September.

Endocrinologists are doctors who specialize in treating thyroid disorders, and may work together with an oncologist in the event thyroid cancer is evident. Utilize Metro's Editorial Library and search "thyroid" to find content concerning thyroid health. Frame articles with complementary advertising from doctors and specialists.
