    Thyroid cessation

    Hi,

    Is the title of my article correct and clear?

    " Evaluation of the impact of thyroid hormones' cessation in quality of life in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer"

    What would you get from this title? Please tell me if it's not obvious. And please make it better if it's possible.

    Thank you.

    Re: The title of my paper

    What do you mean by "cessation?"

    Re: The title of my paper

    Thyroid hormones' cessation is not natural. This would be clear if it conveys the topic of the paper correctly: Evaluation of the Impact of Stopping Thyroid Hormone Replacement on Quality of Life in Patients with Differentiated Thyroid Cancer

    Note the title-style capitalization and the use of on after "impact of".

    I understand the title to mean that the paper discusses how the quality of life of differentiated thyroid cancer patients changes when thyroid hormone replacement therapy is stopped.

    I meant "stopping temporarily". It seems it's not suitable here! Thank you.

    You're very welcome. You could remove Evaluation of from the title without affecting its meaning.
