Genetic Testing Publication. 2017 Authors' conclusions In recent years, significant advances in understanding (...) the genetic mechanisms of thyroid cancer have changed the way thyroid nodules are treated clinically. 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.

Thyroid Cancer: Screening Recommendation | United States Preventive Services Taskforce Toggle navigation Main navigation Main navigation Recommendation Adults The USPSTF recommends against screening for thyroid cancer in asymptomatic adults. D View the Clinical Summary in Population Asymptomatic adults Recommendation Do not screen for thyroid cancer. Grade: D Risk Assessment Factors that substantially increase the risk for thyroid cancer include a history of radiation exposure to the head (...) and neck as a child, exposure to radioactive fallout, family history of thyroid cancer in a first-degree relative, and certain genetic conditions, such as familial medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome (type 2A or 2B). Screening Tests Evidence is inadequate to estimate the accuracy of neck palpation or ultrasound of the thyroid as screening tests for thyroid cancer in asymptomatic persons. Treatment Surgery (ie, total or partial thyroidectomy, with or without lymphadenectomy

131. Association between screening and the thyroid cancer "epidemic" in South Korea: evidence from a nationwide study. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Association between screening and the thyroid cancer "epidemic" in South Korea: evidence from a nationwide study.  To investigate whether screening for thyroid cancer led to the current "epidemic" in South Korea. Review of the medical records of nationally representative samples of patients with a diagnosis of thyroid cancer in 1999, 2005, and 2008. Sample cases were randomly selected from South Korea's nationwide cancer registry, using a systematic sampling method after stratification (...) by region. 5796 patients with thyroid cancer were included (891 in 1999, 2355 in 2005, and 2550 in 2008). 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). Between 1999 and 2008, the incidence of thyroid cancer increased 6.4-fold (95% confidence interval 4.9-fold to 8.4-fold), from 6.4 (95% confidence interval 6.2 to 6.6

Lacrimal gland enlargement as an early clinical or radiological sign in thyroid orbitopathy Characteristic ophthalmic signs of Thyroid Orbitopathy (TO) include exophthalmos, eyelid retraction, eyelid edema, restrictive extraocular myopathy, and optic neuropathy. In addition lacrimal gland (LG) enlargement can be observed in these patients. However TO has not usually been considered in the differential diagnosis of cases of isolated LG enlargement.A female patient at our institution (Texas Tech (...) 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. This may save unnecessary and extensive diagnostic testing or even LG biopsies.
