Abstract

The correct approach to the treatment of thyroid cancer is to consider it not as a single disease but as a spectrum of diseases. This dictum relates only in part to differences in histological type because the same pertains to the most common form, papillary thyroid cancer, and, indeed, to thyroid cancer that has already metastasized. The key to appropriate management is the recognition of those ancillary factors that strongly influence the clinical course and prognosis. These so-called risk factors declare themselves at the first therapeutic intervention.
