«Dear Thyroid»

× Prof. Dr. Jan-Henning Raff

× Jenny Bergström

Thyroid cancer is one of the most rapidly increasing tumor types worldwide. Due to this, patients with thyroid cancer suffer physically and mentally due to hormonal withdrawal. The initial diagnosis causes stress, fear, followed by surgical treatment, and concern for post-surgery scar formation. The abrupt growth of health-related apps is available and easy to download but quality health care apps are in no doubt on high demand. Thus, creating a tangible M-health tool to improve Quality of Life for Thyroid Cancer Patients need constant monitoring to track their symptoms and help them connect directly to qualified physicians.
