Ochsner’s Endocrinology Division provides care to essentially all of the clinic’s thyroid cancer patients. These cases usually develop through a thyroid nodule that is discovered by the patient, provider or even a radiologic test undertaken for a completely different reason.
Call 504-842-3910 for more information or to make an appointment.
The patient is referred to Ochsner’s Endocrinology Division for a risk assessment and an FNA procedure, also known as a Fine Needle Aspiration procedure. A decision can then be made by the patient regarding surgery options or other follow-ups.
