• patients
  • In nearly all cases, the patients do not have any thyroid hormone dysfunction (hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism - respectively, excessive or low hormone levels). (wikipedia.org)
  • Thyroid FNACs of 100 patients with subsequent histology were analysed. (sljol.info)
  • The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of two anticancer drugs, everolimus and pasireotide, in patients with thyroid cancer when the cancer is no longer responding to treatment with radioiodine or where it is deemed unsafe for the patient to receive additional radioiodine treatment. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • After initial treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer patients (DTC) are followed by a blood test, a biomarker called thyroglobulin, in order to detect a possible recurrence. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The goal of this study is to determine the activity of sorafenib in patients with advanced (metastatic or recurrent) thyroid cancer. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Patients must have histologically confirmed thyroid cancer that is metastatic or unresectable and for which standard curative or palliative measures do not exist or are no longer effective. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Typically a painless thyroid mass is found in patients with this type of cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Follicular thyroid cancer (10% to 20% of cases) - occasionally seen in patients with Cowden syndrome Medullary thyroid cancer (5% to 8% of cases) - cancer of the parafollicular cells, often part of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2. (wikipedia.org)
  • of patients with MEN1 and gastrinoma FMTC = familial medullary thyroid cancer MEN 2B is sometimes known as MEN 3 and the designation varies by institution (c.f. www.ClinicalReview.com). (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • There's still a risk of hypothyroidism though, as the remaining thyroid tissue may not be able to produce enough hormones in the long-run. (wikipedia.org)
  • The l. lobe contains several thyroid nodules some of which are isoechoic with adjacent tissue whereas others are hypoechoic. (medhelp.org)
  • Some physicians favor administering the maximum safe dose (calculated based on a number of factors), while others favor administering smaller doses, which may still be effective in ablating all thyroid tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • I-131 is used for ablation of the thyroid tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • hormone
  • These occur when the thyroid is producing too much or too little thyroid hormone respectively. (wikipedia.org)
  • After removing the thyroid, the patient must be supplied with a replacement hormone for the rest of their life. (wikipedia.org)
  • When needed, whole body scans consist of withdrawal from thyroxine medication and/or injection of recombinant human Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis
  • Several investigators have proposed a more cohesive approach to thyroid cancer diagnosis incorporating molecular and proteomics based tools in addition to the conventional morphological diagnosis. (bmj.com)
  • cysts
  • SETTLE is a distinct low-grade neoplasm , believed to be derived from branchial pouch or thymic remnants, with only 1 case report showing association with epithelium-lined cysts of possible branchial pouch derivation. (omicsonline.org)
  • lymphoma
  • Environmental exposure to ionizing radiation from both natural background sources and artificial sources is suspected to play a significant role, and there are significant increased rates of thyroid cancer in those exposed to mantlefield radiation for lymphoma, and those exposed to iodine-131 following the Chernobyl, Fukushima, Kyshtym, and Windscale nuclear disasters.
