In this nationwide, prospective cohort study we investigated changes in health-related quality of life in 351 Swedish differentiated thyroid cancer patients in the five years following treatment and studied the association between health-related quality of life and TSH suppression. We found that mental quality of life improves over time following treatment for differentiated thyroid cancer and that health-related quality of life is not predicted by TSH suppression. Several psychosocial domains were reduced in differentiated thyroid cancer patients five years after treatment compared to the general population, suggesting that patients should be screened for psychosocial health issues during follow-up.
