: I want to know what percent of people who had thyroid cancer have cancer later and what types?

Sorry but I don't know but I thought you might find this article from Mary Shomon's Thyroid newsletter "Sticking Our Necks Out" interesting.

WORLD'S ONLY CONFERENCE FOR THYROID CANCER SURVIVORS, FAMILIES, AND
FRIENDS TO TAKE PLACE SEPTEMBER 8-10

Fifteen prominent physicians involved in thyroid cancer care and
research are among the featured speakers at the Third International
Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Conference September 8-10 at the National 4-H
Conference Center, 7100 Connecticut Avenue, Chevy Chase, Maryland. The
conference is sponsored by ThyCa: Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Association,
Inc., an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization of thyroid
cancer survivors, families, and health professionals. The conference fee
is $40 ($35 for annual members, $30 for lifetime members). There's a $5
discount for all registrations postmarked by July 31. The postmark
deadline for mail registrations is August 19. After that date,
registrations will be accepted onsite at the conference. The three days
will include speakers, discussions, and sharing sessions for everyone
whose life has been touched by thyroid cancer, the most common endocrine
cancer. Roundtables and workshops will focus on the needs of people
being tested or newly diagnosed; survivors of many years; and family
members, caregivers, and friends. Workshop leaders will cover
diagnosis, treatment, followup, and monitoring of every form of thyroid
cancer. The conference will also include sessions on nutrition, fitness,
art therapy, massage therapy, coping with the hypothyroidism involved in
testing and treatment, other approaches to comfort and well-being,
health insurance, workplace issues, and many other topics. The complete
program, registration form, and other details are on ThyCa website at
http://www.thyca.org . For more information, e-mail to
