Radioactive Iodine Treatment
If you have had radioactive iodine treatment for papillary or follicular thyroid cancer, you will need a follow up assessment between 9-12 months after treatment to check your response and to decide if any further radioactive iodine treatment is needed.
Unlike other more common cancers, patients with a diagnosis of thyroid cancer usually remain on follow up in the clinic life long. After the initial period of treatment and follow up clinic visits, the subsequent follow up is often only needed on a once yearly basis.
