Larry Krystkowiak Had Cancerous Thyroid Removed In Spring

Utah head coach :Larry Krystkowiak said he had his thyroid removed in the spring after doctors “found some cancer in it.”

On the first Larry Krystkowiak Coach’s Show of the 2016-17 season on ESPN 700, the Utah head coach said he had his thyroid removed in the spring after doctors “found some cancer in it.” He did not go into details about the operation, but joked, “I gotta watch the midsection. That’s one of the byproducts of not having a thyroid. I guess you get a little chunky.”

In the vast majority of cases, cancer in the thyroid is not serious and is very treatable.  Bill Riley noted on Twitter that Krystkowiak is cancer-free.
