The majority of patients with well-differentiated thyroid cancer (WDTC), whether derived from the follicular cell or the C-cell, present with a focal, often palpable, intrathyroidal primary lesion, but at initial diagnosis, many such tumors have already spread to regional lymph nodes, mainly in the neck (1). The prevalence of such neck nodal metastases (NNM) at presentation varies significantly among the various histological subtypes of WDTC but approaches 40% (2) in both papillary thyroid… CONTINUE READING
