According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 38.4% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some points during their lifetimes, according to the data from 2013–2015.
The thyroid, one of the largest endocrine glands found in the neck, below the Adam’s Apple plays an essential role to regulate the use of energy, make of proteins and produce hormones.
Papillary thyroid cancer is the most common type of thyroid cancer, accounting for over 80 percent of all cases. It tends to develop in the women age group between 30-40 years with the tendency to grow slowly.
Follicular thyroid cancer, the second most common thyroid cancer, accounting for over 15 % of all cases. It is a low growing cancer with peak onset from ages 40 through 60.
Medullary thyroid cancer, the third most common thyroid cancer that makes up only 3 percent of all cases, arises from thyroid hormone producing cells with abnormally high levels of calcitonin. Medullary thyroid cancer tends to grow slowly but it can spread to distant parts of the body, if not treated early.
Anaplastic thyroid cancer is the rare case of thyroid cancer, accounting for less than 2 percent of all cases. It tends to grow and spread very quickly.
On finding a potential ingredient for the treatment of cancer, researchers examined the effect of curcumin on invasion and metastasis of thyroid cancers.
At a dose-dependent manner, curcumin also suppressed K1 cells viability, attachment, spreading, migration and invasion abilities.
Furthermore, curcumin could also inhibit the expression and activity of an enzyme associated with cancer cell proliferation.
Additionally, curcumin also blocked the activated transforming growth factor -β1 associated with the expression and activity of an enzyme associated with cancer cell proliferation.
