Summary of "New aspects in thyroid cancer treatment : Highlights of the 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting."

The majority of patients with thyroid cancer have a remarkably good chance of cure in the context of surgical treatment, due to their mostly local tumor spread. However, a small proportion of patients with advanced and metastatic thyroid tumors usually require multimodality treatment. Abstracts from the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting are summarized in this review, to provide insights into current aspects of thyroid carcinoma treatment. In addition to innovations in the treatment of radioiodine-refractory differentiated and medullary thyroid carcinoma, current approaches to anaplastic thyroid carcinoma are presented and critically interpreted.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.

Tumors or cancer of the THYROID GLAND.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
