Follicular Thyroid Cancer is cancer that forms in follicular cells in the thyroid. It grows slowly and is highly treatable.
New research recently published in the Journal of Pediatric Surgery found that post-operative success rates of pediatric thyroid patients, particularly children who require a thyroidectomy, correlate with the institution's patient volume.
A panel of 19 microRNAs identified using next-generation sequencing could categorize indeterminate thyroid nodule samples into malignant and benign.
Incidence of thyroid cancer is rising faster in Pennsylvania than in the rest of the United States as a whole, according to Penn State College of Medicine researchers.
A spectrum of disparities exist in the surgical management of well-differentiated thyroid cancer, according to new data presented at the 82nd Annual Meeting of the American Thyroid Association (ATA) in Québec City, Québec, Canada.
Quest Diagnostics, the world's leading provider of diagnostic testing, information and services, today announced a new molecular test panel designed to help physicians determine if a thyroid gland is cancerous and requires surgical removal.
A mutant gene long thought to accelerate tumor growth in thyroid cancer patients actually inhibits the spread of malignant cells, showing promise for novel cancer therapies, a Mayo Clinic study has found.
OXiGENE, a clinical-stage, biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics to treat cancer and eye diseases, announced that an ongoing analysis of positive results reported earlier from a randomized, controlled, Phase 2/3 study of ZYBRESTAT (fosbretabulin, CA4P) were presented today at the 35th European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) Congress in Milan, Italy by Julie Ann Sosa, M.D., F.A.C.S., of Yale University.
A medication that helps stop the growth of new blood vessels has produced dramatic benefits for some patients with aggressive thyroid cancer, research from Mayo Clinic indicates.
New research suggests that physicians can distinguish between a type of thyroid cancer and an identical-looking, non-cancerous thyroid condition by simply determining the activity of three genes.
