Childhood radiation-induced thyroid cancer does not affect all-cause mortality compared with healthy individuals.
The BABA robotic thyroidectomy technique appears to be safe, with excellent outcomes in benign and malignant thyroid disease.
Malignancy was more common in children with thyroid nodules classified as indeterminate by BSRTC criteria compared with adults.
Ethanol sensitization before radiofrequency ablation of benign thyroid nodules reduced time, ablation energy, and complications compared with conventional ablation.
Most imaging centers in the United States fail to analyze lateral neck lymph nodes during preoperative ultrasounds in patients with thyroid cancer.
Recombinant Human Thyrotropin vs Thyroid Hormone Withdrawal After Radioiodine Therapy in Thyroid CancerOctober 05, 2018
Outcomes after radioiodine therapy are similar after preparation with either recombinant human thyrotropin or thyroid hormone withdrawal.
Male thyroid cancer survivors have a nearly 50 percent higher risk of developing CVD than female survivors within five years of cancer diagnosis.
Calling it 'cancer' rather than 'lesions' or 'abnormal cells' could increase anxiety, likelihood of surgery.
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.

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.
Thyroid cancer screening in asymptomatic adults was given a D recommendation because of the negative effects of screening outweighing any benefits.
