Can Laser Hair Removal Cause Thyroid Cancer?

Postby Amasiah » Thu Sep 07, 2017 8:41 pm

My mom has been going to the doctor about her thyroid for almost 2 years now. Her recent diagnosis from her biopsy says " suspicious for follicular neoplasm and hurthle cell type." The doctors are not 100% sure but say that she is likely to have cancer. My mom has been taking laser hair removal for 10 years. She is positive that is the reason sh might have this cancer. Even though all the doctors say that this is not possible she still believes it is. Can laser hair removal cause thyroid cancer? Is this really the reason why she might have cancer?

A few months ago, I was very sick, zero energy, freezing cold, depressed, weight gain, thought I was dying. I read every word of this Hypothyroidism Revolution program and followed all the advice. My life turned around the first week. I started to feel human again. Within weeks my energy came back and I felt like living again.

Get the entire hypothyroidism revolution system today? just choose the best option for you.

Her belief is wrong.

Reasons for to get Thyroid cancer are altogether different.

Radiation:People exposed to high levels of radiation are much more likely than others to develop papillary or follicular thyroid cancer. One important source of radiation exposure is treatment with x-rays. Another source of radiation is radioactive fallout from atomic weapons testing, nuclear power plant accidents, and releases from atomic weapons production plants.

Family history: Medullary thyroid cancer can be caused by a change, or alteration, in a gene called RET. The altered RET gene can be passed from parent to child. Nearly everyone with the altered RET gene will develop medullary thyroid cancer. A small number of people with a family history of goiter or certain precancerous polyps in the colon are at risk for developing papillary thyroid cancer.

Sex: women are two to three times more likely than men to develop thyroid cancer.

Age: Most patients with thyroid cancer are more than 40 years old. People with anaplastic thyroid cancer are usually more than 65 years old.

Iodine Deficiency:Deficiency of iodine in the diet

I have not heard that. If you are interested in hair removal, but concerned about lasers, there are other methods for removing hair.

No, it doesn't.

People like to believe they know the causes of bad things for two reasons:

People don't like uncertainty.
"You might have cancer, and if you do, it wasn't caused by anything in particular" isn't a satisfying answer.

People like to have something to blame.

Having something to blame means that it is under control.
If something caused it, then we can make sure it doesn't come back by not doing the thing we believe caused it.
