Dr. Campbell to present his work on the risk of undiagnosed thyroid cancer in patients with multinodular goiters.
Dr. Campbell will present his new manuscript on the risk of undiagnosed thyroid cancer in patients with cervical multinodular goiters at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the Pacific Coast Surgical Association in Dana Point, California. The study, which was done in conjunction with UCSF, found an increased risk of thyroid cancer in patients with mulinodular goiters, even after a benign biopsy. This risk was increased in male patients and in patients whose biopsy was not reviewed by a cytopathologist with experience in thyroid biopsies. The article will be published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) – Surgery.
