Dr. Mailabathula Sundara Sikhamani

Abstract: Background: Thyroid cancer is a common malignancy and occur more frequently in women. Diagnosis is based on fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) /ultrasound guided FNAC in corroboration with ultrasound findings. Papillary carcinoma is the most common thyroid malignancy accounting for 70 - 80% of cases. Here in, we describe the clinical and histo - morphological features of various types of malignant tumors of thyroid seen in our hospital setting. Materials and methods: This retrospective observational study was done over a period of 2 years (January 2021 - December 2022) in our department. All the malignant thyroid tumors diagnosed on histopathological examination were included in this study for clinicopathological evaluation. Results: A total of 58 cases were included in this study. Majority of cases belonged to 31 - 45 years with female preponderance. Papillary carcinoma was found to be the most common type seen in 45 (77.5%) cases, followed by follicular carcinoma, 8 (13.7%), anaplastic carcinoma, 2 (3.4%), medullary carcinoma, 2 (3.4%) and non - Hodgkin?s lymphoma seen in 1 (1.7%) case. There were 24 (41.3%) cases that were showing lymph nodal metastasis. Conclusion: This study gives an insight into the role and judicious usage of methods that improve the diagnostic accuracy and their utility in post - operative management of these patients.
