Treatment

This will vary depending on which organs are affected and the stage of the disease. It may involve both surgical and medical treatment.

  • Surgery – Some cancers may be removed from places like the thyroid and parathyroid glands as well as the adrenal glands
  • Medical treatment – In some cases surgery is not warranted and the doctor may advise taking medication rather than having a gland removed.
  • Family screening should be considered
