Can Thyroid Cancer cause Malabsorption?

I just been diagnosed as most likely having Pap. Thyroid cancer and my endo is geting my surgery scheduled.  However, 6 months ago I started having major stomach issues.  The gasto finally figured out that the gas and diahrea was from Malabsorption (my fat and other valuable minerals/vitamins) not being absorbed correctly.  I also am no anemic and on iron because of this but my gastro has yet to figure out the cause of the malabsorption.  Could my Thyroid Cancer be the cause?
