In healthy patients with papillary thyroid microcarcinomas, active surveillance may be a feasible and safe alternative to immediate surgery, according to study results published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. There is controversy regarding optimal management of low-risk thyroid carcinomas, with active surveillance emerging as a potential alternative to surgery. However, there is…
