Although many attempts have been made to predict the occurrence of lymph node metastases from papillary thyroid carcinoma, there are currently no reliable means to accurately predict cervical nodal metastasis. In this study, we present a novel prediction system for the lymph node metastasis based on the histological and cyclin D1 staining features. The frequency of lymph node metastases from a series of 210 papillary thyroid carcinomas was analyzed according to the clinicopathological variables… CONTINUE READING
