CQ51. Are Measurements of Calcitonin and CEA Useful as Markers of Recurrence After Surgery for Medullary Carcinoma?
Medullary thyroid carcinoma originates from parafollicular c-cells, which secrete calcitonin. Since medullary carcinoma cells also secrete calcitonin, this CQ examined whether calcitonin is a marker of recurrence. The same study was performed for CEA.
