Parathyroid Cancer

Overview

Parathyroid cancer is a rare cancer that forms in the parathyroid glands, four small glands in the neck near the thyroid gland. These glands are responsible for regulating calcium levels in our blood and bones. Most tumors that occur in the parathyroid glands are benign. Symptoms are caused by the secretion of hormones.

Less than 100 cases of parathyroid cancer are diagnosed each year in the U.S.

The Patricia Lynch Cancer Center at Holy Name has a multi-disciplinary team of experienced and skilled ENT surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurses and support staff to treat parathyroid cancer. Together they provide a compassionate, unified approach in creating a personal strategy for each patient's unique medical, emotional and lifestyle needs.
