Title

Overdiagnosis and overtreatment of thyroid cancer: A population-based temporal trend study

CollaborationWith : Bouchardy Magnin, Christine
Published in PLOS ONE. 2017, vol. 12, no. 6, p. e0179387
Abstract The increase in incidence of thyroid cancer during the last decades without concomitant rise in mortality may reflect the growing detection of indolent forms of thyroid cancer, and may have fueled unnecessary thyroidectomies. Our aim was therefore, to compare recent secular trends in surgical intervention rate for thyroid cancer with the incidence and mortality of thyroid cancer to assess overdiagnosis and resulting overtreatment.
