Low-Risk Papillary Thyroid Cancer

  • Current therapeutic options for low-risk papillary thyroid carcinoma:
  • Most cases of thyroid carcinoma are classified as low risk:
    • These lesions can be treated with surgery, active surveillance, and percutaneous ablation:
      • However, there is lack of consensus and clear indications for a specific treatment selection
  • The objective of this study is to review the literature regarding the indications for management selection for low-risk carcinomas:
    • Systematic review exploring inclusion and exclusion criteria used to select patients with low-risk carcinomas for treatment approaches
      • The search found 69 studies
  • The inclusion criteria most reported were nodule diameter and histopathological confirmation of the tumor type
  • The most common exclusions were lymph node metastasis and extra-thyroidal extension
  • There was significant heterogeneity among inclusion and exclusion criteria according to the analyzed therapeutic approach
  • Alternative therapeutic approaches in low-risk carcinomas can be cautiously considered
  • Thyroidectomy remains the standard treatment against which all other approaches must be compared
