NCCN Presents Updates to NCCN Guidelines for Thyroid Carcinoma
Date:3/16/2009

roughout the Papillary, Follicular and Hurthle Cell Guidelines.

"Given the potential toxicities associated with TSH Suppression therapy that can have an effect on bone and heart health, it is best to use this therapy in a limited capacity," noted Sherman. "The new page in the NCCN Guidelines states that patients should be treated with the most conservative dose of hormone suppression therapy based on their level of disease plan. In addition, for those patients with recurrent thyroid carcinoma being administered TSH therapy, the NCCN Guidelines recommend decreasing the dose over time and encouraging adequate intake of calcium and vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis."

In addition, the procedures for evaluating thyroid nodules have been revised in the updated NCCN Guidelines particularly those for follicular or Hurthle cell neoplasms or for follicular lesions of undetermined significance, which cannot be diagnosed by fine needle aspiration (FNA). The diagnostic categories for FNA results have been revised in the new NCCN Guidelines and reflect recent data from the National Cancer Institute State of the Science Conference.

Dr. Sherman stressed the importance of evaluating suspicious nodules saying that, "ultrasound continues to be the single most useful imaging tool to diagnose palpable thyroid masses, however; there are no diagnostic features of a nodule that is benign."
