There is no known way to prevent thyroid cancer, but the following factors may reduce risk:

  • Avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation around the neck area, including radiation from medical imaging procedures, especially in young children.
  • Those with inherited genetic conditions that increase the risk of medullary thyroid cancer may wish to discuss the risk with a genetic counsellor.
