NCCN Guidelines for Patients



Thyroid Cancer, Version 1.2017


Treatment guide

Papillary, follicular, and

Hürthle cell

After any treatment, the surveillance and

maintenance phase will start. This will include

follow-up testing with imaging tests, blood tests,

and physical exams.

See Guides 15 and 16


Your doctor will continue to monitor your health and

consider further treatment if any cancer is suspected

or found.

It is helpful to ask your doctor about your follow-up

care. This way you can prepare for your visits and

any further testing you may need. It is also a good

idea to share any symptoms you have with your

doctor. He or she will want to know how you are

feeling after treatment and between your visits.
