ABSTRACT
Objectives:
This study assessed the effect of a combination of Korean medicine and immunotherapy on three papillary thyroid cancer patients following thyroidectomy.

Methods:
The three patients who underwent thyroidectomy received Korean medical treatments, including acupuncture, moxibustion, pharmacopuncture, and immunotherapy. To evaluate the patients, symptoms were measured using the Numerical Rating Scale (NRS) and Karnofsky Performance Status Scale (KPS). Blood tests, including thyroid function tests, were conducted during treatment.

Results:
After treatment, postoperative pain and general weakness were gradually alleviated.

Conclusions:
These cases provide evidence that treatment with a combination of Korean medicine and immunotherapy can have substantial benefits for postoperative complications following thyroidectomy.
Key words: Papillary thyroid cancer, Thyroidectomy, Acupuncture, Korean Herbal Medicine, Immunotherapy
