Thyroid cancer

Chapter

Abstract

  • © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2015. The incidence of thyroid cancer is increasing in the United States, and patients present frequently with newly diagnosed thyroid nodules. An understanding of the differences between the histological types of thyroid cancers in their presentation, diagnostic workup, surgical management, adjuvant therapy, surveillance, and management for recurrent disease is therefore important. This chapter explores these differences and provides current recommendations for multimodality treatment to optimize the care of thyroid cancer patients.
