Thyroid cancer by J. Shah

  1. 1. The International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic SocietiesCurrent Concepts in Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology 2012 Thyroid CancerTreatment of the Primary Jatin P. Shah
  2. 2. Thyroid Cancer Issues •  Incidence •  Risk Group •  Pathology Stratification •  Exploiting Biology •  Selection of Therapy •  Practice Patterns •  Follow up •  Prognostic •  Future Directions Factors •  Summary2012
  3. 3. Thyroid Cancer – Incidence & Mortality 1974 to 2012Thousands 6 USA Overall0 5646034323028262422 Women2018 432101614 Men1210 13250 8 6 Mortality 4 2 1780 0 1974 1978 1982 1986 1990 1994 1998 2002 2006 2010 2012 2012 Overall Incidence Incidence in Women Incidence in Men Mortality
  4. 4. Trends in Incidence ofThyroid Cancer and Papillary Tumors by Size in the United States2012 Davies, L. et al. JAMA 2006;295:2164-2167
  5. 5. Differentiated Cancer of the Thyroid Gland A Biologically Unique Neoplasm •  Multifocal microscopic foci of carcinoma are common (60 – 80%) •  Micrometastases to regional lymph nodes are common (>50%)2012 Its clinical significance ???
  6. 6. Pathology Cancer of the Thyroid Papillary Medullary ~65% ~10% Follicular Anaplastic (Hurthle cell) ~20% ~5%2012
  7. 7. Pathology Cancer of the Thyroid Papillary Thyroid Tall Cell, PoorlyFollicular Insular, differentiated Anaplastic Cell etc Follicular Good Bad Ugly2012 ~85% ~15% <2%
  8. 8. Contemporary Thinking of Pathology of Thyroid Cancer •  Nearly 80% are Papillary Carcinomas •  Pure Follicular Carcinomas are rare •  Approximately 12-15% are Poorly Differentiated Carcinomas •  Approximately 5-7 % are Medullary Carcinomas •  Less than 2% are2012 Anaplastic Carcinomas
  9. 9. Prognosis in Thyroid CancerWDTC Great majority after initial treatment CuredA small proportion (~10%) will develop local/regional recurrence without negative impact on survival Mortality is exceedingly rare (<2%)2012
  10. 10. Prognosis in Thyroid Cancer A very small proportion will undergo progression to aggressive variantsPTC Tall Cell Poorly Diff Anaplastic Mortality2012
  11. 11. Exploiting Biology for ManagementPTC Tall Cell Poorly Diff Anaplastic Thyroglobulin & TTF Differentiation2012
  12. 12. Exploiting Biology for ManagementPTC Tall Cell Poorly Diff Anaplastic Glucose metabolism PET Scan Cell division Differentiation Iodine avidity2012 RAI Scan
  13. 13. Prognosis in Thyroid Cancer Genomic InstabilityPTC Tall Cell Poorly Diff Anaplastic Size, ETE, DM, Mortality2012
  14. 14. Differentiated Cancer of the Thyroid Gland Treatment Paradigm Total or near total thyroidectomy Radioiodine ablation If we follow Radioiodine therapy this practice Follow up with TGb and ultrasound •  Majority get excessive treatment at great cost with little or no benefit 2012 •  Some derive benefit •  Some have no impact on prognosis with treatment

  21. 21. Selection of Therapy Be Aggressive at Extremes of Age•  Children (< 16 yrs). Total Thyroidectomy and RAI therapy•  Older patients (> 60 yrs). Appropriate Aggressive Surgery followed by RAI and/or RT Adults Low risk High risk tumor inUnifocal intraglandular all age groups tumor in all age groups Total Lobectomy Thyroidectomy Aggressive surgery2012
