Thyroid carcinoma is a relatively rare tumour, but represents the most frequent form of endocrine malignancy. Thyroid nodules are present in 4% to 7% of population by neck palpation (the incidence increases with increasing age) and 30 to 50% by ultrasonography. It is believed that fewer than 5% of these nodules are malignant and require surgical treatment, and that extensive evaluation for surgical excision is not practical. However, Stoffer et al. reported that 13% of the glands resected in thyroid operation for any reason contained carcinoma.
