Abnormal growth of malignant cells in thyroid gland is thyroid cancer. Thyroid is a gland located below the Adam’s apple. Hormones produced by thyroid gland helps in regulating the blood pressure, body’s temperature and weight. Thyroid cancers can be cured easily with proper treatment if diagnosed in its initial stages.
Types of Thyroid Cancer
The main types of thyroid cancer are detailed below.
Papillary Thyroid Cancer: This type of thyroid cancer is the most common type and develops in follicular cells, which produce and store thyroid hormones. Most often, this type of thyroid cancer occurs between the ages of 30 and 50, but can occur at any age.
Follicular Thyroid Cancer: Follicular cancer which is commonly found in people after the age of 50, also develops in the follicular cells. An aggressive version of follicular thyroid cancer is known by the name Hurthle cell cancer.
Medullary Thyroid Cancer: Cancers that starts developing in thyroid cells named medullary C cells which produce hormone calcitonin are known as medullary thyroid cancer. Elevated blood levels of calcitonin helps early detection this type of thyroid cancer. Some genetic syndromes increase the risk of this type of cancer.
Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer: Anaplastic thyroid cancer is a rare type of very aggressive type of thyroid cancer that occurs in people who are above the age of 60.
Thyroid Lymphoma: This is another type of thyroid cancer that is commonly found in elderly people. This type of thyroid cancer starts developing in the immune system cells and they grow and spread very fast.
Generally Known Causes Thyroid Cancer
Causes of thyroid cancer are unknown to the present day medical science. It is believed that the changes in the genetic makeup of cells of thyroid gland are the primary cause for the formation of thyroid cancer. The abnormal cells formed by the mutational and epigenetic changes grow rapidly and they spread pushing the healthy cells and slowly tumor forms which in course of time transforms to cancer. The following ostensible conditions and factors are considered as the risk factors for the development of thyroid cancer.
- Being female
- Exposure to high level of radiation
- Certain genetic syndromes that increase the risk of thyroid cancer include familial medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia and familial adenomatous polyposis.
- A personal or family history of thyroid disease or thyroid cancer.
- Being Asian.
Dynamic Science (DS) Based Causes of Thyroid Cancer
Present science (material science) identifies that there are mutations or epigenetic changes happen in the genetic or DNA level that leads to the development of Cancer. Dynamic Science, which explains how mind, vital force (soul) and DNA are interconnected, reveals that our mind regulates the DNA with finality, though there are influences on DNA from the outside energy sources and also from the bio-chemical changes that happen in the physical body. But all DNA changes are ultimately under regulatory control of the mental thoughts. Through our researches based on DSA, we identify different mental and emotional thought processes that constructively or destructively influence the DNA structure. We identify that naturally positive, happy, comfortable, peaceful and pure mental emotional state constructively or curatively modify the DNA whereas negative, unnatural, pessimistic, fearful, destructive mental and emotional states derange the DNA to express itself to an unhealthy plane. Also each thought is connected to a functional system and/or organ of the body. In this connection we search for specific important mental and emotional state/thought that affects the thyroid gland in the development of thyroid cancer. It is still an ongoing research and development activity and a new direction of scientific observation which can make the development of future Medical Science and a new methodology of treatment.

Signs and Symptoms of Thyroid Cancer
Thyroid cancer does not show any symptoms in its early stages. As the cancer grows, the following symptoms are shown.
- A lump or swelling in the throat that can be felt by touching
- Voice change or hoarseness not related to cold
- Difficulty in swallowing
- Lymph nodes in the neck becomes swollen
- Pain in the throat and occasionally in ears
- Difficulty breathing or constant wheezing.
- A cough that continues and is not related to a cold.
Diagnosis of Thyroid Cancer
The following are the procedures of
Physical examination: Physical examination of your thyroid gland through inspection and palpation will be the first step.
Blood tests: Blood tests will help to find the level of certain hormones and chemicals in it. An elevated level of certain hormones can confirm the existence of thyroid tumor or cancer.
Biopsy: We appreciate the excisional biopsy of the thyroid mass by surgically removing the entire mass along with the enlarged lymph nodes, if any and do the microscopic examination for identification of the suspected nature of tumor.
Imaging tests: Imaging tests like computerized tomography (CT) scan, positron emission tomography (PET) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, ultrasound scan, etc. are also widely used for the diagnosis of thyroid cancers, especially in understanding the extend of the growth and spread of the tumor.
Genetic testing: As genetic syndromes constitute serious risk factors in thyroid cancers, your doctor may opt for genetic testing to study the effect of genes in the formation of the cancer.
Dynamic Scientific Approach (DSA) in Thyroid Cancer Treatment
The natural holistic DSA treatment for thyroid cancer is developed by our founder director and chief physician Dr. Shaji Varghese Kudiyat, who invented a new generation science named Dynamic Science (DS) in which the human health and disease developments are viewed in a different perspective, which has hitherto been unknown. Dynamic Science explains how energy level entities like mind and the Vital Force (Soul) are connected with one’s DNA and regulate its functions and hypothesizes that by judiciously combining counseling, homeopathic medications, yoga, meditation, music therapy, etc. curative mutations and epigenetic changes can be produced in the DNA. He believes and has showed time and again that the curative changes so developed will be sustained with the inspired determination of the patient who is willing to undergo inner transformation for the good with the help of proper reasonable understanding and with the assistance and support of the family members, by which cancer can be cured completely and naturally. DSA treatment also includes judicious application of surgery whenever needed.
Dr. Shaji Kudiyat is a researcher, scholar and scientist in the furtherance of science to make science more complete to make it suitable to study and research in living organisms by incorporating the dynamic or energy components with the physical body so that research studies and their inferences and conclusions become more complete. Dr. Kudiyat believes only such complete conclusions and inferences can provide complete solutions for the sufferings of living organisms, especially human beings. So in our DSA treatment, we begin with a seminar or group counseling for the patient and the whole family members and the other concerned individuals involved with the treatment of the patient, explaining the basics of the cancer development and DSA treatment. This counseling is given directly or through online video consultation and helps in undergoing the treatment with clarity of mind, confidence and trust in the treatment process.

Homeopathic Treatment for Thyroid Cancer
Homeopathy is a very popular holistic system of medicine invented by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician in the eighteenth century. This system of treatment has been found to be extremely useful in directly influencing the vital force which in turn results in beneficial mutations and epigenetic changes. Our chief physician and founder director Dr. Shaji Varghese Kudiyat is a versatile genius who is a scholar and researcher carrying out scientific observations, investigations and experiments to find a solution to the ever daunting problem of cancer. The homeopathic treatment is based on the basic law “Similia SImilibus Curentur” meaning “let like be cured by like” and utilises the body’s own natural healing potentials to eliminate the disease. Dr. Kudiyat has written a book titled “Homeopathic Medicine, An Unavoidable Medical Revolution” and scientifically explain hitherto unanswered question, how homeopathic medicine works, through the hypotheses of the Dynamic Science. Homeopathic treatment in our center is under the direct control or guidance of Dr. Kudiyat and all our patients will get the benefit of undergoing his personal analytical ability in identifying and rectifying the root cause of the disease along with proper medicines and management.
