In addition, DNA microarray gene profiling and microRNA analyses have discriminated benign from malignant thyroid tumors
(63-65) and borderline lesions.
High prevalence of activating RET proto-oncogene rearrangements in thyroid tumors
from patients who had received external radiation.
Thyroglobulin--the key thyroid tumor
marker--strengths and limitations
India's first robot assisted Thyroidectomy was performed on a 20 year old girl, suffering from a thyroid tumor
Doctors at Ipswich have now also treated a patient with a thyroid tumor
in her neck.
In addition the low anterior small incision for the treatment of benign thyroid tumor
results in safe effective and clear operative field.
During surgery, the thyroid tumor
was found to be adherent to the right recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) (figure 2, A).
Papillary thyroid carcinoma IPTC) is the most common type of malignant thyroid tumor
, constituting more than 70% of thyroid malignancies (3).
When thyroid cancer metastasizes, lymph nodes in the neck may be affected, but these lymph-node tumors can be tiny and may not be detected by ultrasounds done before surgery to remove the diseased thyroid--or even during the procedure itself, hi an international academic study published in the December issue of the journal Surgery, UCLA researchers and colleagues demonstrated that routine removal of neck lymph nodes during initial thyroid surgery for papillary cancer may lead to lower disease recurrence rates and lower levels of thyroglobulin, a thyroid tumor
marker that can be an indicator of disease when elevated.
These nine articles describe some of the work being done to differentiate markers and use their presence to detect and treat a range of cancers, addressing the characterization of breast cancer subtypes in a large retrospective study, intraocular lymphoma markers, polymorphisms in genes associated with certain T-cell lymphomas, tumor antigens that are markers of minimal residual disease in acute myeloid leukemia, thyroid tumor
markers, activity and expression of dipeptidyl peptidase IV and cathepsin H in human cutaneous melanoma compared to other common cancers, melanoma inhibitory activity as a serological marker in metastic melanoma, and the promise (or myth) of the tumor necrosis factor alpha receptors p55 and p75 in ovarian cancer detection.

formation in the male Long-Evans rat administered high doses of alachlor.
