No Ultrasound Changes in Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma During Pregnancy.

Oh HS et al  Thyroid. 2017 May 17.

 

No clinically relevant changes associated with a progression of PTC were observed during pregnancy. Delayed thyroid surgery with active surveillance can be an appropriate approach for pregnant patients with PTC.

Comments:

We have delayed surgery for years but many pregnant females do not want to wait for fear of progression.US study confirms no change in 19 pregnant patients that deferred surgery.
