Over-diagnosis of thyroid cancer and a blow to "increasing thyroid cancer due to Fukushima"!


"Finally, the enormous increase in thyroid-cancer incidence in South Korea subsequent to opportunistic ultrasonography-based screening sends a strong warning about data interpretation in the context of large-scale screening of the thyroid gland after radiation exposure from exceptional events like the nuclear accident in Fukushima."

Papillary cancer is not a mandatory indication for agressive treatment. People diagnosed with papillary cancer of the thyroid should ask for a second advice before deciding an agressive approach.
