Thyroid cancer (TC) is the most common endocrine malignancy. TC incidence has dramatically increased in the recent decades [1]. During the same period no other cancer has increased as much as TC. With the worldwide increase in the incidence of TC, it has become the fifth most common cancer in women [2-4]. In some countries, the incidence of TC has increased extremely fast, and it has been the most common cancer for the last years [5].

Comparison of Nineteen Chemical Elements in Thyroid Tissue adjacent to Thyroid Malignant and Benign Nodules using Nuclear Analytical Methods

TLDR
The role of some chemical elements (ChEs) in the origination and development of thyroid benign and malignant nodules is clarified to clarify the importance of these elements in theiology and pathogenesis of TN.

Evaluation of Fifty Trace Element Contents in Thyroid Adenomas using a Combination of Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis and Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry

Introduction Thyroid adenomas (TA) are homogenous, solitary, encapsulated benign tumors, more common in females, and have a good prognosis. However, because there is a 20% possibility of malignant

Evaluation of Twenty Chemical Element Contents in Thyroid Adenomas using X-Ray Fluorescent and Neutron Activation Analysis

Besides I involved in thyroid function, other ChE have also essential physiological functions such as maintenance and regulation of cell function, gene regulation, activation or inhibition of

Comparison of Trace Element Contents in Normal and Adenomatous Thyroid investigated using Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis

TLDR
Thyroid adenomas are benign tumors, but there is a 20% possibility of malignant transformation, so it is possible to suppose that the considerable changes in TE contents in the adenomatous transformed tissue of thyroid can be used as TA biomarkers.

COMPARISON OF LEVELS OF TWENTY CHEMICAL ELEMENTS IN NORMAL THYROID TISSUE AND HYPERTROPHIC THYROID TISSUE

TLDR
Assessment of thyroid tissue levels of twenty chemical elements found that contents of Al, B, Br, Cl, Cu, Fe, Li, Mg, Mn, Na, P, S, Si, V, and Zn are significantly higher while the I levels are lower in NG than in normal tissues, suggesting there are considerable changes in ChE contents in goitrous tissue of thyroid.

Evaluation of twenty chemical element contents in thyroid adenomas using neutron activation analysis and inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry

TLDR
Thyroid adenomas are benign tumors, but there is a 20% possibility of malignant transformation, so changes in levels Al, B, Br, Cl, Cu, I, Na, and Zn in thyroid tissue can be used as TA markers.

Comparison of trace element contents in normal thyroid and thyroid with Hashimoto's thyroiditis using neutron activation analysis

TLDR
Because the considerable changes in some TE contents in tissue of thyroid with HT were found, it is reasonable to assume that the levels of these TE in thyroid tissue can be used as HT markers, however, this topic needs additional studies.

Diagnosis of Thyroid Malignancy Using Chemical Elements of Nodular Tissue Determined by Neutron Activation Analysis

TLDR
It was concluded that determination of the I level in a needle biopsy of TNs using non-destructive instrumental analytical method is a fast, reliable, and very informative diagnostic tool that can be successfully used as an additional test of thyroid malignancy identification.

Determination of Fifty Trace Element Contents in Macro and Micro Follicular Colloid Nodular Goiter

TLDR
It was found that with a goitrous transformation the Ag, Al, B, Bi, Co, Er, Fe, Hg, Mo, Nd, Ni, Pb, Pr, Rb, Tl, U, Y, and Zn level in thyroid tissue can be significantly changed, and these changes depend on CNG histology.

4.0. Diagnosis of thyroid malignancy using trace elements of nodular tissue determined by neutron activation

TLDR
It was concluded that determination of the I level in a needle biopsy of TNs using non-destructive instrumental analytical method is a fast, reliable, and very informative diagnostic tool that can be successfully used as an additional test of thyroid malignancy identification.

Worldwide Increasing Incidence of Thyroid Cancer: Update on Epidemiology and Risk Factors

TLDR
The increased incidence of thyroid cancer is most likely due to a combination of an apparent increase due to more sensitive diagnostic procedures and of a true increase, a possible consequence of increased population exposure to radiation and to other still unrecognized carcinogens.

Trace elements and thyroid cancer.

TLDR
The hypothesis that the direct toxic heavy metal influence on thyrocytes plays a major role in thyroid cancer etiology and diagnostics is supported, provided that an adequate level of the defence mechanisms is absent.

Serum changes in trace elements during thyroid cancers

TLDR
The decrease of serum levels of zinc in cancer patients may be linked to the disease condition, and this change may have implications for a long-term follow-up of thyroid cancer patients.

Differences between 66 Chemical Element Contents in Normal and Cancerous Prostate

TLDR
It is revealed that in malignantly transformed prostate the chemical element metabolism is drastically disturbed and the prostatic levels of chemical elements in patients with PCa and healthy males are clarified.

TLDR
The incidence of thyroid cancer has rapidly increased, with a decrease in tumors of large size, LN involvement, and ETE, although the decreasing rates of LN involved and E TE were not as prominent as decreasing ratesof large size tumors.

Determination of Trace and Minor Metals in Benign and Malign Human Thyroid Tissues

TLDR
It is understood that the decreases in the calcium levels in the cancerous thyroid samples in compared to non-cancerous tissues and the interaction between nickel and magnesium are very important for the investigation of cancer mechanism and may be important for cancer diagnosis.

Intracellular Zinc Excess as One of the Main Factors in the Etiology of Prostate Cancer

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the prostatic intracellular Zn concentrations are probably one of the most important factors in the etiology of PCa and may disturb the cells’ functions, resulting in cellular degeneration, death or malignant transformation.

The Comparison between the Contents and Interrelationships of 17Chemical Elements in Normal and Cancerous Prostate Gland

TLDR
In adenocarcinoma transformed prostate tissue the chemical element metabolism is significantly disturbed and it was shown that malignant transformation significantly changed the interrelationships of chemical elements in prostate.

Selenoenzymes, Laboratory Parameters, and Trace Elements in Different Types of Thyroid Tumor

TLDR
Investigation of selenoenzyme activities and trace element concentrations in thyroid tissues revealed relevant parameters as possible additional markers of tumor grade, clinical course, and prognosis of thyroid disorders, and types I and II iodothyronine deiodinases were the most promising targets for diagnoses and possibly therapy of thyroid tumors.
