BTCT is the only registered charity in the UK dedicated solely to the support of people affected by Thyroid Cancer. We offer support,information and encouaragement to people affected by Thyroid Cancer.
This study run by the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals aims to determine patients’ quality of life following surgery for either thyroid or parathyroid disease. The survey will take 10 minutes to complete.
The focus of this study is to look in depth at the effect of low blood calcium levels, one of the potential side effects of this type of surgery, has on quality of life. Our research group is working on new ways of reducing this side effect of surgery.
We would be very grateful if any patient who has had thyroid or parathyroid surgery could complete the survey, regardless of whether they themselves have ever had low blood calcium levels. Here is the link :
