    Thumbs up Thyroid cancer

    Thank you for your great help. I need to know about thyroid cancer specifically. Is there any guidline or instruction which tells us what the overall policy in these specific long-survivers? (as thyroid cancer has almost a normal surviving rate.)

    Please share an instruction or something if you have. Thank you so much.


    (Please check my post. Thank you.)

    Re: Thyroid cancer

    Oh, sorry! I don't mean that you answer my questions. I was in a scientific debate in Researchgate and my first post is a part of that. The reason I sent it here is that I want you to proofread it. Because I don't want to use bad English when I talk with a great oncologist!

    Re: Thyroid cancer

    By "normal surviving rate" I mean patients with thyroid cancer won't die because of the cancer. They can live as long as others.

    Re: Thyroid cancer

    The usual phrase is "[average] survival rate" but that doesn't seem to fit your meaning in post #5. You would need something like "(As I understand it, the majority of thyroid cancer sufferers make a complete recovery and go on to have a normal lifespan)".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    So, what does "average survival rate" mean?

    Re: Thyroid cancer

    It means the rate of people with thyroid cancer who can survive on average.

    Re: Thyroid cancer

    And bear in mind that "survival rate" usually refers to the percentage of sufferers who are still alive 5 or 10 years after going into remission. It does not mean that people are "cured".
