Hi. Thyroid cancers can be of various types. The papillary and follicular types have a better outcome. The medullary, anaplastic cancer and lymphoma of thyroid have a poor prognosis. Anplastic cancer has the worst outcome, since it spreads throughout the body easily. Papillary and Follicular cancer can be operated if detected early, followed by radiation therapy, and hence have a better outcome.

Smoking can have adverse effect on any type of cancer. It would be really appreciable if you try to quit smoking.

Hello and thank you for sending the question. It is not likely that this is related to the thyroid cancer but this is something that should be reviewed with your doctor. There are many different possible causes at this type of discomfort. I would review the symptoms with your doctor to discuss if there needs to be any imaging studies or possibly some medication to alleviate the symptoms. Other things which can cause this include ulcers or acid reflux or possibly some type of infection in the intestines. Thanks again for sending your question
