The rate of diagnosis of thyroid cancer has increased in recent years due to improvements to technology. In many cases, physicians cannot feel a nodule, but cancer can be detected through ultrasound screenings. The survival rate of thyroid cancer is very high when the cancer is found in early stages.
“I am grateful to once again partner with HeartScan Services to provide this important service for Staten Islanders. I understand the importance of engaging in preventative measures and taking charge of your health, which is why I encourage all Staten Islanders to take advantage of these free screenings. The earlier cancer is found, the easier it is to treat,” said Borough Presdient Oddo.
