The aim of the study was to compare the prevalence of autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITD) in patients with breast and colorectal cancer and controls and to evaluate the impact of AITD on the outcome of patients with breast cancer. Serum levels of TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone), FT4 (free thyroxine), TPOAb (antibodies to thyroid peroxidase), TgAb(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the prevalence of autoimmune thyroid diseases in three groups of women (66 with breast cancer (CaB), 68 with colorectal cancer (CaC) and 49 without oncological diseases as a control group). Serum levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), free thyroxin (fT4), antibodies to thyroglobulin (TGB-ab) and thyroperoxidase(More)
Data in the literature concerning thyroid disease in women after treatment of breast cancer differ. The authors examined therefore the thyroid function (thyroid stimulating hormone, thyroxine, triiodothyronine, antibodies against thyroid peroxidase and against thyroglobulin) in a random sample of 76 women after ablation of the breast on account of(More)
265 Background: Breast cancer (BC) is the most common cancer in women. 12% of BC occur in women age 20-34. BC is classified as "pregnancy associated" if it is diagnosed during pregnancy or within one year after the delivery (PABC). We propose two distinct subtypes of PABC: BC diagnosed during pregnancy and BC diagnosed post-partum. This distinction is(More)
BACKGROUND Neuroendocrine tumors are traditionally considered to be "rare" diseases. On contrary, the prevalence of neuroendocrine tumors is high. Therefore, the diagnostics, treatment and follow-up of neuroendocrine tumors are subjected to an evolving interest. There are various specifics of neuroendocrine tumors requiring an appropriate feedback of each(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the structural changes in ultrasound image of the thyroid tissue in 12 women with breast cancer (BC) and 8 women with colorectal cancer (CC). MATLAB software was used to analyse the digitised images. As quantitative descriptors of thyroid ultrasound images (QDTI) were used raw grey scale values of individual image pixels(More)
In a group of 82 women with breast cancer selected at random 10 had treatment on account of thyroid disease. In 43 women the authors found a positive titre of antibodies against thyroid antigens, indicating autoimmune affection of thyroid tissue. Although none of the patients reported thyroid complaints a total of 11 women of the group (13.4%) had TSH(More)
