Choice between total thyroidectomy or lobectomy has little effect on risk for thyroid cancer mortality.
Investigators sought to assess the link between treatment for thyroid cancer and subsequent cardiac and vascular complications.
In an orthotopic anaplastic thyroid cancer model, hypofractionated radiotherapy is superior to conventionally fractionated radiotherapy.
Study data showed 57% of evaluable patients (N=23) had a partial response and 4% achieved a complete response. Among the 14 responders, 64% did not have significant tumor growths for ≥6 months.
Survivors of thyroid cancer have a higher risk of developing age-associated diseases compared with patients who never had cancer, particularly if they were younger than 40 years at the time of diagnosis.
No clear effect in most cases of a second radioactive iodine (RAI) treatment in patients with differentiated thyroid cancer with biochemical or structural regional incomplete response to initial thyroidectomy and RAI therapy.
No regional or distant metastases developed during active surveillance in low-risk patients.
Revised ATA guidelines have led to an increased interest in risk-adopted management strategies for differentiated thyroid cancer.
Irregular users of thyroxine were less likely to develop thyroid cancer compared to regular users.
Stroke risk with I-131 therapy for thyroid cancer was examined via 2 cohorts using 1:1 propensity score matching.
