What is the thyroglobulin test?

When to get tested?
Your doctor may recommend this test at regular intervals of your thyroid cancer treatment, to see whether the thyroid cancer treatment is successful, or it can also be suggested to detect certain thyroid diseases. A thyroglobulin test price is not high.
A blood sample will be collected from a vein in your arm by a medical expert.
No special treatment is needed. However, ask your doctor if you are taking any supplements. A thyroglobulin test cost is low.
- An increasing thyroglobulin level indicates that cancer cells are growing or the cancer is spreading.
