Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. There is no need to worry at all as papillary carcinoma of thyroid does not spread from one individual to the other due to a needle prick.

The main risk factor of papillary carcinoma thyroid isradiation exposure to the neck during young age.

Papillary cancer will not spread from person to person.
If your child is irradiated for tonsils,adenoids etc in childhood,there is risk of developing papillary cancer of thyroid later in life,mostly after 20 yrs.
But,it is not spread by needle prick.
Nothing to worry
