As geographic differences have been observed in the characteristics of thyroid carcinoma, an analysis was made on thyroid carcinoma in the iodine rich country of]apan.
A total of 10,973 patients with histologically confirmed thyroid carcinoma registered in]apan from 1977-1986 were analyzed.
Cases detected incidentally at autopsy and cases of nonepithelial tumor were excluded.
This series included approximately 27% of all thyroid carcinoma cases in Japan.
