Brief Answer:
Usually, the prognosis is good

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Thyroid cancer is usually curable with surgery followed sometimes by radioiodine therapy. If the disease is high risk, it might come back in a few cases.

However, as 10 yrs have passed without any relapse, the chance of relapse is really low.

Hope this helps.
Regards
