Genetic alteration and prevalence of thyroid cancer

Cancer is general term that is used for all conditions that may lead towards uncontrolled and undesired cell expansion. When the cells of thyroid gland divides or multiply in uncontrolled manner it leads towards thyroid tumor. Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine cancer that is classified into four types named as papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), follicular thyroid cancer (FTC), anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) and medullary thyroid cancer (MTC). Papillary thyroid cancer is the most common of every single endocrine disease representing 85-90% of every thyroid tumor. The data along with detailed history was collected with the help of clinicians in NORI and entered in the Performa. The current study will determine various types of thyroid cancer with respect to genetic alterations.
