Dr.Guttler’s Comments on this article:

  1. Does every classical type of well-differentiated thyroid cancer have excellent prognosis?
  2.  Well-differentiated thyroid cancer (WDTC) is the most common endocrine tumor with generally excellent prognosis.
  3.  However, here are 14 individuals with aggressive classical type of WDTC.
  4. 14/4,327 patients had an aggressive form of WDTC.
  5. 10 (2.87%) cases with papillary thyroid cancer (PTC) and 4 (1.14%) with follicular thyroid cancer (FTC).
  6.  Mortality in 3/14 (21.42%) individuals.
  7. In 4313/4327 patients with classical type of WDTC characterized by excellent prognosis.
  8. Extremely aggressive entities might be observed but is not the norm.
