Epithelial thyroid cancers (TC) comprise two differentiated histotypes (DTC), the papillary (PTC) and the follicular (FTC) thyroid carcinomas which, following dedifferentiation, are assumed to give rise to the poorly differentiated thyroid carcinomas and the rare, but highly aggressive and invariably fatal, anaplastic thyroid carcinomas. Although thyroid cancer mortality has not been changed, its annual incidence has increased over the last two decades, mainly because of the improved ability to… CONTINUE READING
