[Thyroid cancer in an endemic goiter region].

[Article in Russian]


On the basis of an analysis of 1062 operations on the thyroid gland the authors make a conclusion that incidence of cancer of the thyroid gland in the focus of the moderate goiter endemia is 9,6%. Three stages of the development of cancer of the thyroid gland are established: a) precancer, b) latent stage of cancer (histological findings), c) stage of manifest cancer. Complex methods of treatment were used such as radical operation followed by the obligatory radiation therapy (in patients having no contraindications) and permanent treatment by thyroidine in combination with chemotherapy (on indications). Remote results followed in 92 patients during 9 years were quite satisfactory. Recurrences were found in 2 patients.
