What is Medullary Thyroid Cancer Test?

MTC, or medullary thyroid cancer, is a type of cancer that develops in the thyroid. The thyroid gland is situated in the front of the neck, just below the Adam's apple. It is in charge of sending hormones to the rest of your body. The medulla is the interior of the thyroid gland. The medulla contains parafollicular C cells, which produce and release hormones. MTC occurs when C cells become cancerous and out of control. MTC is also known as medullary thyroid carcinoma.

Why it is done?

Elevated calcitonin levels in the blood can indicate medullary thyroid cancer at an early stage. Some medullary thyroid cancers are caused by the RET gene, which is passed down from parents to children.

What is the procedure for Medullary Thyroid Cancer Test?

MTC can begin with a lump in the throat. A thyroid tumour can make your voice hoarse by blocking your vocal chord, or it can make it difficult to breathe by blocking your windpipe. Because the tumour is small, people can have MTC for a long time without symptoms. MTC has the potential to spread to other organs such as the lung, liver, bones, and brain.

  1. MTC is diagnosed by your doctor first feeling your throat for a lump, followed by thyroid imaging scans. Ultrasound, CT, and MRI scans are examples of imaging scans.
  2. Biopsy: The doctor will also want to remove a small amount of tissue from the thyroid, known as a biopsy, with a very thin needle. A pathologist will examine the tissue under a microscope to determine whether cancer cells are present and, if so, what type of thyroid cancer it is.
