Leonard Wartofsky, MD, past president of the American Thyroid Association, and a panel of world-class clinicians critically review all aspects of thyroid cancer from pathogenesis to prognosis, including management and treatment. Organized for rapid access by busy physicians, the book covers both differentiated tumors (papillary carcinoma and follicular carcinoma) and undifferentiated cancers (anaplastic carcinoma, lymphoma, and medullary carcinoma), as well as miscellaneous and unusual cancers of the thyroid. For each tumor type the authors succinctly discuss the key aspects of their clinical presentation, cytology, diagnosis, nuclear isotope scanning evaluation, imaging by MRI or CT, monitoring, surgery, pathology, post-operative care, and prognosis. Authoritative and evidenced-based, Thyroid Cancer: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management provides in one place everything that physicians treating thyroid cancer patients need to know.
