What Symptoms Does Byetta-Induced Thyroid Cancer Cause?
In most cases, thyroid cancer does not cause any noticeable signs or symptoms in the early stages of the disease. As it progresses into its more advanced stages, however, Byetta thyroid cancer symptoms may include:
- Lumps or nodules that can be felt through the skin of the neck
- Changes to the patient’s voice, including increasing hoarseness
- Difficulty swallowing or breathing
- Pain in the neck and/or throat
- Swollen lymph nodes in the neck
- Enlargement of the thyroid gland
If you experience any of these Byetta thyroid cancer symptoms, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately. Thyroid cancer symptoms commonly occur with other diseases, and your doctor will work to diagnose the disease or find another reason for the reactions.
