Thyroid surgery for differentiated thyroid cancer — recent advances and future directions

Key points

The incidence of thyroid cancer is increasing; this includes thyroid cancers of all tumour sizes and stages.

Molecular testing for indeterminate thyroid nodules continues to evolve and guide recommendations for the extent of thyroid surgery.

Appropriate extent of thyroidectomy for patients with low-risk thyroid cancer remains dynamic and might include active surveillance, thyroid lobectomy or total thyroidectomy.

Given the excellent outcomes for most patients with differentiated thyroid cancer, patient preference and a robust discussion regarding options for the extent of surgery and long-term surveillance are critical.

A strong association exists between surgeon volume and patient outcomes; surgeons’ awareness of their own outcomes is critical.

Referring providers, payers and policymakers should be aware of the implications of the association between surgeon volume and patient outcomes so that patient access to experienced thyroid surgeons can be optimized.
