Abstract

The incidence of thyroid cancer has increased significantly in recent decades in several parts of the world. The routine request of ultrasonography has contributed to the increase of the cases, being each time more and more common the diagnoses in asymptomatic ones. Thyroid cancer is the fifth most common cancer in women in the United States, and the largest cause of endocrine neoplasia in the world.
