Treatment of micropapillary carcinoma of the thyroid: Where do we draw the line? THYROID McDougall, I. R., Camargo, C. A. 2007; 17 (11): 1093-1096

Abstract

Two patients with papillary thyroid cancer were seen in consultation after they had been treated in other medical centers. Their cancers measured 1 and 1.2 mm, respectively. Both patients were treated by two thyroid operations and (131)I ablation. We believe that, apart from lobectomy, these therapies were not justified. We draw attention to this to provide a topic for debate and to attempt to prevent this happening to other patients.
