  1. White people were 1.6 times more likely to get thyroid cancer compared to non-whites.
  2. Image result for non white people
  3. 1100 FNAs done in this study.
  4. 4.9 % of non-whites had thyroid cancer
  5. 13 % of whites had thyroid cancer.
  6. Diagnostic bias plays a role.
  7. However after all other factors of poor medical care there till was an increased incidence in the white study group.
  8. Iwata et al Endocrine Practice 24(11) Nov 2018 p.941.
  9. More studies are needed to see if this holds up.
