German Thyroid Cancer Center

German Thyroid Center, a specialized unit of experts, is a beacon of expertise in diagnosing, treating, and managing both benign thyroid diseases and thyroid cancer. This following text explores the multifaceted nature of the Thyroid Center, encompassing its role in addressing benign thyroid conditions and its critical mission in confronting thyroid cancer.

Diagnostics and treatment of benign thyroid diseases

The specialists working at the German Thyroid Center are excellent at diagnosing and treating a range of benign diseases:

Comprehensive care for thyroid cancer

Early detection: Early diagnosis is in some cases favourable for thyroid cancer, and the Thyroid Unit employs advanced diagnostic techniques, including high-resolution ultrasound, CT scans, PET/CT scan and MRI imaging, to identify suspicious thyroid nodules and assess their characteristics

Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy 

Specialized surgery. All the operations are conducted with a focus on preserving vital structures such as the parathyroid glands and recurrent laryngeal nerves.

Radioactive iodine therapy. GMI has designed specialized facilities for providing this therapy safely in a patient friendly and pleasant environment. Every ward has access to the radioactive-protected garden. This means that patients do not need to be confined to their rooms and can get some fresh air, enjoy a brief walk in the yard, and socialize with other patients.

Radiation therapy


Long-term follow-up

Multidisciplinary approach

Central to the effectiveness of the German Thyroid Center is its multidisciplinary approach to patient care. A team of highly specialized healthcare professionals collaborates to develop tailored treatment plans for each patient. This team typically includes:

Radioactive Iodine Therapy (RAI)

After thyroidectomy, radioactive iodine therapy may be used to destroy any remaining thyroid tissue or cancer cells. This treatment takes advantage of the thyroid cells' natural ability to absorb iodine, thereby selectively targeting thyroid cancer cells throughout the body...

Thyroid Hormone Therapy

Following thyroidectomy, patients will require lifelong thyroid hormone replacement therapy to perform the functions of the missing thyroid gland. Additionally, thyroid hormone therapy can suppress the growth of any remaining cancer cells by inhibiting the production of TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone).


Involves the use of drugs to kill cancer cells or stop them from growing and dividing. Chemotherapy can be systemic (affecting the entire body) or localized to a specific area...

Supportive Care (Palliative Care)

Focuses on relieving symptoms and improving the quality of life for patients and their families. It can be provided alongside curative treatments...
