Ochsner J 2021 ;21(2):224-229

Section of Hematology/Oncology, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA.

Differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) is comprised of papillary and follicular subtypes, and both have an overall excellent long-term prognosis. Patients with localized DTC that is successfully treated, usually with surgery, exhibit long-term survival well above 90%. In contrast, patients who develop distant metastatic disease have a significantly worse overall prognosis and outcome, often with disease that is refractory to conventional therapy such as surgery, radioactive iodine, and hormone suppression.
