Thyroid Gland — ICD 193

  • Witold Zatonski
  • Nikolaus Becker


The ASMR for cancer of the thyroid gland in men was 0.4 both in 1963 and in 1982, while the respective figures for women were 0.6 and 0.7. The mortality rates show no clear increase in time either in the individual age groups or in all of them together. The mortality rate increases exponentially with age from 45–50 onwards, and the steepness of the curve is greater in women than in men.
