By June 23, 2020 News

Thyroid Cancer and Thyroid Nodules In 30 MinutesNewton, Mass., June 23 — Publisher i30 Media today launched Thyroid Cancer and Thyroid Nodules In 30 Minutes: A guide to symptoms, diagnosis, surgery, and disease management (ISBN: 978-1-64188-046-6). In the book, author, surgeon, and Harvard Medical School Professor Per-Olof Hasselgren M.D., Ph.D., uses plain-English explanations, case studies, and illustrations to explain the basics of thyroid cancer and thyroid nodules. Topics include:

  • The anatomy and function of the thyroid gland
  • The role of thyroid hormones
  • Blood and imaging tests
  • Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism
  • Bethesda classifications and the risk for cancer
  • Management of benign nodules
  • Management of thyroid cancer
  • Total thyroidectomies and other types of thyroid surgery
  • Different types of doctors and medical specialists you may encounter 

The author also describes four cases involving patients diagnosed with thyroid nodules, including malignant nodules. He will help us follow the diagnostic workup and management options (including different types of surgeries) in a 37-year old stay-at-home mom, a 19-year old college student, a 62-year old truck driver, and a 58-year old high school teacher.

This book is not a do-it-yourself guide — a doctor is needed to diagnose and provide medical advice. However, Thyroid Cancer and Thyroid Nodules In 30 Minutes can help you understand what your doctor is recommending and why. If you or a loved one is diagnosed with thyroid nodules, Thyroid Cancer and Thyroid Nodules In 30 Minutes can be an invaluable and expert resource. 

More information about Thyroid Cancer and Thyroid Nodules In 30 Minutes as well as online ordering options can be found on the companion website, thyroid.in30minutes.com. The paperback retail price is $14.99 while the ebook edition is available on the Amazon Kindle and other devices for $9.99. A hardcover edition is also available.

What readers are saying

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

A very informative read that covers all the basics in a simple and easy-to-read format. The use of case studies was particularly useful and there are a number of pages I will certainly be referring to as a refresher in the future. As a voice therapist, I would have preferred more on the impact of the voice but that’s from my own professional perspective.

Overall, a very handy introduction to the subject and ideal for making quick references.

I have read many books on Thyroid conditions and I found this book to be the most informative and easy to understand. It explains what the thyroid actually does and how it functions, right through to the conditions that can affect it. Well-written and very pleased to have it in my library.

This book is a comprehensive and understandable description of thyroid diseases and issues. I was diagnosed with thyroid nodules 20 years ago and have been having checkups every year. This book put my mind at ease about the probability of them turning to cancer. I wish I had access to this information when I was diagnosed. This book is a MUST READ for anyone with thyroid issues.

This is a fantastic guide about the thyroid, thyroid cancer and thyroid nodules.

This guide explains about what the thyroid is, what it does, what it looks like, where it is and how it’s used, then goes on to show 4 cases where patients have had thyroid nodules or cancer and what happened medically for them.

My mother had Thyroid cancer last year and had her thyroid and parathyroid removed and I wish we would have had this book then, it would have put us so much at ease.

For years, I have had thyroid nodules, and see an endocrinologist regularly for treatment. When I saw this book on NetGalley, I immediately wanted to read it to find out more about my condition. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy, which I read in a short time. The book is not long, but it provides a good overview and explanation of the thyroid, thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer. Luckily, my nodules are quite small and have not led to surgery or to cancer—which I hope continues. This book can provide a lot of good information on the thyroid for anyone with a thyroid condition, who has a loved one or someone they know with a thyroid condition, or who has or has had thyroid cancer. I liked the way Dr. Hasselgren began by setting the stage, discussing the thyroid, where it is located in the body and its functions. He then covered everything and anything a person would want to know about nodules, thyroid surgery and thyroid cancer. The book was not too wordy, nor did it “talk down” to the reader. No, it was professionally written, in language anyone could understand.
