Role of Serum TSH Levels in Predicting Thyroid Malignancy
Dr. A. Akarsh Chowdary | Dr. Choda Anuhya
Abstract: In India, thyroid malignancies accounts for less than 1% of all malignancies (2% of women and 0.5% of men). Thyroid cancer is responsible for six deaths per 1 million persons annually. It is the commonest endocrine tumour that shows a geographic variation in the incidence of tumour type and natural history. Serum TSH is a well - established growth factor for thyroid nodules and suppression of TSH concentrations by administering exogenous thyroxine may interfere with growth of established nodules as well as formation of new nodules. Recent studies have found levels of serum TSH to be an independent predictor of malignancy in thyroid nodules. Present study aims at evaluating the association of Serum TSH concentration with thyroid carcinoma, and its significance in management of Thyroid carcinoma.
