A diagnosis of dermatolmyositis requires an examination by a dermatologist, blood tests and a skin biopsy. in some cases a muscle biopsy is also required.
A referral to a dermatologist is the best place to start.

Broadly speaking, the majority of thyroid cancer is very treatable, with excellent long-term survival outcomes. However, there are certain types of thyroid cancer that are more aggressive. Therefore, it is important that patients with thyroid cancer are thoroughly assessed and managed by specialists with an interest in the condition.

Again, generally speaking, surgery is the main mode of treatment for the majority of thyroid cancer patients. Further treatment may be required after surgery, depending on the findings at surgery. Regardless of the initial treatment, long-term follow up is recommended.

Ideally, patients with thyroid cancer should be treated by an experienced endocrine surgeon in conjunction with an endocrinologist.
