Recurrent differentiated thyroid carcinoma: Biological implications of age, method of detection, and site and extent of recurrence
Practice Guidelines as Topic
Isolated thyroid remnant recurrence defines a benign phenotype. Age, method of detection, site and extent of recurrence, and the ability to render the patient disease free predict outcome for recurrent DTC. Multimodality long-term follow-up is warranted to detect recurrence at a subclinical potentially curative stage.
