Abstract

Background: With the increasing use of thyroid ultrasound, the recognition of thyroid nodules in a large proportion of apparently healthy subjects has become common. Because also the papillary thyroid microcarcinomas (PTMC) are being increasingly discovered, it is important to ascertain whether PTMC may exhibit heterogenous clinical features, associated with different aggressiveness. Aim: We retrospectively examined 122 subjects [98 female (80.3%), and 24 male (19.7%)] with thyroid cancer to find potential clinical and pathological findings that could be predictive of clinically aggressive behavior. Results: Twenty of the 31 patients with true incidental cancer (64.5%) in comparison to 20 of the 91 patients with non-incidental cancer (21.9%) had a diameter
