This chapter has reviewed the UK guidelines for the management of thyroid cancer and made reference to other available guidelines. The objective for clinicians involved in treating thyroid cancer must be to achieve lower recurrence rate and lower mortality rate. This will require early diagnosis and treatment, specialist management of patients by an MDT, adherence to guidelines, better detection of recurrence, and more effective treatment for progressive disease. In addition, clinicians should aim for improved wellbeing of the patient, and to that end consideration must be given to improving communication as well as the avoidance of hypothyroidism.
