1. Introduction

This survey collects information about voice disorders following thyroid surgery. We would like to better understand how frequently these issues occur. Please help our research study by completing this questionnaire. The answers you give may be used in a future publication about our research.

The survey is being used to determine if vocal change affected the respondent’s life. We realize that no survey can adequately address each individual’s questions. The medical literature may not represent the actual incidence of vocal change after thyroid cancer treatment.

Only thyroid cancer survivors, and not their caregivers, should participate in this survey. If you choose to participate in this study you will not need to give your name or any other identifying information. Whether or not you choose to complete the questionnaire will not affect your medical care now or in the future. If you can’t answer a question, leave it blank. This survey should take about five minutes to complete.

Thank you for your participation.
