A dramatic increase in the incidence of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) after childhood exposure to ionizing radiation from the Chernobyl nuclear accident has been described as the largest number of tumors of one type due to one cause that have ever occurred. inter-individual variations in response to radiation have been documented and the role of genetics in sporadic PTC is well established, suggesting that genetic factors may also affect the risk of radiation-related PTC. To investigate how… CONTINUE READING
