Description:
Case numbers and histological types The thyroid gland, located at the front of the neck around the trachea and beneath the larynx, is part of the endocrine system and is responsible for the production of thyroid hormone. During the most recent 5 years for which data is available (2006-2010), an average of 162 cases of thyroid cancer per year was diagnosed (Table 1). Thyroid cancers are rare, and between 2006 and 2010, they comprised just 0.9% of all invasive cancers registered (1.4% of all female cancers and 0.5% of male cancers). The lifetime risk of diagnosis was 2.5 times higher in females (1 in 240) than in males (1 in 580). Since 1994, almost all cases have been microscopically verified (97%). Almost twothirds of female and half of male cancers were papillary subtypes. Follicular thyroid cancers represented approximately 20% of all cases diagnosed in both sexes. Medullary and anaplastic tumours were rarer, representing just 5% and 7% of all cases respectively and were more frequently diagnosed in men.
