Are cancer support groups recommended for people with thyroid cancer?

ANSWER

Most people recover well from thyroid cancer treatment. But during treatment, you may want to consider a cancer support group.

Even with lots of help from family and friends, you might want to check out support groups in your area. One of the main reasons people join is to be with others who face the same type of cancer.

Some research shows that cancer support groups not only help you feel more hopeful, but also help you deal better with side effects.
