Hosted by the Endocrine Surgery Committee of the American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Foundation during its AAO-HNSF 2016 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO℠ in conjunction with the Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association during the annual meeting of the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery in San Diego.

- Is there an epidemic of thyroid cancer?
- I have thyroid cancer. Is my family at higher risk?
- Evaluation of thyroid nodules in the era of molecular biology - please help!
- What's the best way to manage the lymph nodes? Surgery?
- I have thyroid cancer. Who should I see, where should I get treatment and why?
- Can my thyroid cancer come back? What's my risk of recurrence?
- What does thyroglobulin blood test mean and how often do I need to get tested?
- Do I need radioodiodine treatment and why?
- My cancer has recurred. Now what?
