Many thyroid conditions have been and continue to be incorrectly diagnosed through exclusive use of TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) testing as the sole signifier of possible thyroid dysfunction. Unfortunately, TSH is wrongly considered by the majority of endocrinologists and many other physicians to be the only indicator required to produce an accurate and comprehensive analysis of one’s thyroid health. Because of this many people come away from their physicians as being misdiagnosed or having their thyroid condition completely disregarded.

Hey, my mother is having thyroid cancer and we were not able to find the actual cause behind this condition. I have heard that heredity can be an important factor when it comes to the case of cancer. We have no history of cancer in our family. My mother had to undergo dental x-rays when she met with an accident. She had to do it almost every month as she had regular dental problems after the accident. My aunt said that frequent dental x-rays can cause thyroid cancer. I was researching on this topic and came across a blog ( https://www.dawsondental.ca/blog/dentist-visits/do-dental-x-rays-lead-to-thyroid-cancer/ ) which explains in detail about the link between dental x-rays and thyroid cancer. But, the blog states that there is no proven evidence that dental x-rays can lead to thyroid cancer.
Can anyone explain in detail about those lifestyle habits that can cause thyroid cancer?
