Diagnosis confirmed by thyroid scan demonstrating a hot area and suppression of extranodular thyroid tissue. Hyperthyroidism caused by toxic adenomas (...) generally does not remit. Definitive treatment, such as radioactive iodine therapy, is usually required. Complications of untreated toxic adenomas may include sequelae of hyperthyroidism such as cardiac dysfunction or bone loss, or tracheal compression by large nodules.

The most important diagnostic test is fine-needle aspiration. Treatment is usually total thyroidectomy followed by radioactive iodine (...) ablation and TSH suppression (papillary or follicular). Treatment differs and must be tailored for uncommon types of thyroid cancer such as medullary, lymphoma, or anaplastic. Prognosis depends on risk-group stratification.

Methods Patients with WDTC were identified from SEER registries. Competing risk regression analysis was performed to calculate the risks of SHMs that occurred after WDTC treatment and outcomes after SHM development were assessed. Results Of 148,215 patients with WDTC, 53% received surgery alone and 47% received RAI. In total, 783 patients developed an SHM after a median interval of 6.5

Several molecular targets have been associated with malignancy, including microRNA (miRNA), a noncoding endogenous form of RNA that helps regulate gene expression. Previous investigations have detected the dysregulation of miRNAs in malignant thyroid nodules, identifying the potential role of miRNAs in differentiating benign thyroid nodules from malignant ones.

110. Association between screening and the thyroid cancer "epidemic" in South Korea: evidence from a nationwide study.

Association between screening and the thyroid cancer "epidemic" in South Korea: evidence from a nationwide study. OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether screening for thyroid cancer led to the current "epidemic" in South Korea. DESIGN: Review of the medical records of nationally representative samples of patients with a diagnosis of thyroid cancer in 1999, 2005, and 2008. SETTING: Sample cases were randomly selected from South Korea's nationwide cancer registry, using a systematic sampling method (...) after stratification by region. PARTICIPANTS: 5796 patients with thyroid cancer were included (891 in 1999, 2355 in 2005, and 2550 in 2008). MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The primary outcome was age standardised incidence of thyroid cancer and the changes in incidence between 1999 and 2008 according to the methods used to detect tumours (screen detection versus clinical detection versus unspecified). RESULTS: Between 1999 and 2008, the incidence of thyroid cancer increased 6.4-fold (95% confidence interval

This case represents, to our knowledge, the first report of LG enlargement as an initial presenting sign of TO. Further clinical and radiological studies looking at the natural history of TO would be useful to better understand the timing of LG involvement. In patients presenting with lacrimal gland enlargement, thyroid orbitopathy should be strongly considered in the differential diagnosis together with other causes of dacryoadenitis and LG tumors.

120. Use of imaging tests after primary treatment of thyroid cancer in the United States: population based retrospective cohort study evaluating death and recurrence.

Use of imaging tests after primary treatment of thyroid cancer in the United States: population based retrospective cohort study evaluating death and recurrence. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether the use of imaging tests after primary treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer is associated with more treatment for recurrence and fewer deaths from the disease. DESIGN: Population based retrospective cohort study. SETTING: Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results-Medicare database in the United (...) States. PARTICIPANTS: 28 220 patients diagnosed with differentiated thyroid cancer between 1998 and 2011. The study cohort was followed up to 2013, with a median follow-up of 69 months. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Treatment for recurrence of differentiated thyroid cancer (additional neck surgery, additional radioactive iodine treatment, or radiotherapy), and deaths due to differentiated thyroid cancer. We conducted propensity score analyses to assess the relation between imaging (neck ultrasound
