The Spanish phrase "cancer de tiroides sintomas" means "thyroid cancer symptoms" in English. The most common symptom of thyroid cancer is a lump or swelling in the throat. Other symptoms include neck and ear pain, difficulty swallowing and breathing, a hoarse voice and persistent coughing.
Some people with thyroid cancer do not display any symptoms except a lump or nodule in their neck that a doctor might discover during a routine physical exam. Thyroid cancer is an uncommon disease caused by abnormal cell growth in the thyroid gland. The causes of thyroid cancer are unknown, but exposure to radiation puts people at a higher risk for contracting the disease.
