Thyroid cancer, papillary

Common Name(s)

Thyroid cancer, papillary

Papillary thyroid cancer is the most common type of thyroid cancer, making up about 80% of all thyroid cancer cases. Papillary carcinoma usually arises as an irregular, solid mass that comes from thyroid tissue. If the tumor is small and not invading other tissues then treatment could consist of removal of the lobe of the thyroid that contains the tumor. Because the thyroid is the only part of the body that can absorb iodine, treatment for tumors that are very large or ones that have spread could also consist of giving the patient radioactive iodine. Papillary thyroid cancer occurs most frequently in women 20-55 years old.
