While medullary thyroid cancer remains a surgically treated malignancy, the opportunity for cure is dependent on early diagnosis and treatment. After a brief review of current treatment guidelines, panelists will participate in a semi-structured case-based discussion of disease management focusing on areas of critical importance to management and those that remain controversial.
Join us for a robust discussion based CME with representation from a multidisciplinary team of specialists from endocrinology, pathology and laboratory, medical oncology and surgical oncology.
