Endocrine cancers form in glands or in cells that produce hormones. This includes the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pituitary glands and other neuroendocrine sites.
Prof Tom Eade
I have over 30 years' experience as a registered nurse and cancer nurse coordinator since 2010, with a Master in Cancer Nursing, Foundation in Clinical Leadership. I'm trained as a clinical supervisor and am an active participant in speciality nursing groups promoting the role of the radiation oncology nurse.
I coordinate the care of patients with thyroid cancer as an integral member of the multi-disciplinary cancer team. I am passionate about providing a high standard of care to patients and ensuring best outcomes through research.
When diagnosed with cancer, it's common to feel overwhelmed and forget questions to ask the doctor. The Cancer Council offers a list of suggested questions for you or your carer to ask at appointments.
These can help you be more involved in your care.
