Abstract
Objective: To explore the impacts of Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy and Radioactive Iodine Ablation (RAI) on symptomatology before and after treatment of Thyroid cancer (TC) patients at Nuclear Institute of Medicine and Radiotherapy (NIMRA) Jamshoro and Larkana Institute of Nuclear Medicine and Radiotherapy (LINAR), Larkana, Pakistan.
