In the womb, there is no danger of thyroid cancer.
However, there are still some cases of thyroid cancers which are difficult to treat.
It is important to be aware of these rare cases, as well as how they are treated and how long it will take for the thyroid to recover.
We speak to Dr. Peter Tappen, professor of gynecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Tappens, who has a special interest in thyroid cancer, will discuss the common symptoms of thyroid gland cancer and how they can be treated.
