Results from a sub-analysis of the impact of age on the safety and efficacy of lenvatinib in patients with RR-DTC in the SELECT trial showed that lenvatinib significantly increased PFS.
Immunotherapy regimens FDA-approved for the treatment of melanoma may also be an option for a rare and aggressive form of papillary thyroid cancer.
Although screening is often recommended as the first line of prevention for most cancers, recent recommendation from the USPSTF advises against thyroid cancer screening in nonsymptomatic adults.
Thyroid is more likely to be managed with surgical intervention when patients have access to expanded health insurance.
A report on incidence of thyroid cancer shows incidence of the disease is increasing among certain populations: younger persons, Hispanic, and African American.
Increase mainly due to papillary thyroid cancer, which increased in incidence for all SEER stages at diagnosis
Deciding not to intervene for small, incidentally identified thyroid cancer may cause patients to experience anxiety and feelings of isolation.
[OncoTargets and Therapy] This research presents an overview of patient and disease management in pediatric pediatric papillary thyroid (PTC) patients.
Widespread routine thyroid cancer screening can lead to overdiagnosis and overtreatment, the USPSTF contends.
Quality of Life and Cosmetic Result of Single-port Access Endoscopic Thyroidectomy via Axillary Approach in Patients with papillary thyroid carcinomaAugust 18, 2016
[OncoTargets and Therapy] This research reviews the effects of single-port access transaxillary totally endoscopic thyroidectomy on outcomes following surgery, including quality of life and cosmetic result, in patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC).
Patients with medullary thyroid cancer who harbor RET M918T or RAS mutations may derive greater clinical benefit from cabozantinib compared with patients who do not have those genetic mutations.
There were no effective therapeutic options for advanced thyroid cancer until 5 years ago.
Scientists developed an innovative nanoplatform to more effectively deliver RNA interference to anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) sites. ATC is the most aggressive form of thyroid cancer; mortality is almost 100% and median survival is 3 to 5 months.
In women of reproductive age who have thyroid cancer, their remaining egg supply is affected by radioactive iodine treatment, potentially reducing their fertility.
Review found increased odds for developing thyroid or breast cancer as secondary malignancy after the other cancer type was diagnosed.
Treatment with sorafenib in patients with progressive metastatic medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) is well tolerated and resulted in disease control.
Elderly patients can safely undergo thyroid surgery with careful preoperative screening. The procedure was found to be no more dangerous in patients older than 65 years than in those ages 21 to 35 years.
Survivors of thyroid cancer report their quality of life after diagnosis and treatment as poor compared with patients whose diagnoses are more lethal cancers.
To test thyroid malignancy, many biomarkers are tested separately to confirm cancer. However, new research shows that the tests used to measure 2 major biomarkers in the diagnosis of thyroid cancer may be inaccurate.
A recent discovery may lead to the development of a cell-based regenerative therapy for restoring thyroid function in cancer patients after thyroidectomy and in children born with congenital hypothyroidism.
New, evidence-based recommendations from the American Thyroid Association will help guide the management of thyroid nodules. The new guidelines also focus on diagnosis and management of DTC, an increasingly prevalent form of cancer.

Low-risk cancers that are asymptomatic and presumably will not cause problems in the future are responsible for the rapid increase in the number of new thyroid cancer diagnoses over the past decade, according to a study.
What would be the ideal TSH level for patients after total thyroidectomy for cancer of the papillary thyroid?
