About this book

Introduction

Much has changed in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid cancer over the past five years. Essentials of Thyroid Cancer Management provides clinicians from all disciplines with the information they need to manage patients correctly.

Each chapter focuses on a specific clinical situation with the major points explained using tables and figures. A teaching atlas is included for neck ultrasonography and the interpretation of whole body radioiodine scans.

Examples of topics that are covered include:

*Evaluation of a thyroid nodule

*Total versus hemi thyroidectomy

*Neck dissection for positive nodes

*Thyroid remnant ablation with I-131

*Preparation for remnant ablation with recombinant human TSH

*Follow-up with recombinant human TSH-stimulated Tg measurements

*Testing for tumor persistence

*Treatment of persistent disease

*External beam radiotherapy

*Management of distant metastases using recombinant human TSH

*Using molecular markers of medullary carcinoma

Series editor comments:

"Benign and malignant tumors of the thyroid are relatively common lesions. The management of thyroid cancer is multi-disciplinary involving Endocrinologists, Surgeons, Nuclear Medicine Physicians, and Medical and Radiation Oncologists. This text provides a comprehensive review of current management issues by leading investigators in the field."
