indicative of an early event in thyroid tumorigenesis ( 28 ). All this leads to the assumption that the presence of SMAD4 mutations cannot differentiate between well-differentiated thyroid cancer and PDTC. KIT encodes for a tyrosine kinase receptor and

Introduction Increased access to imaging techniques and fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) has resulted in an increase in the rate of detection of differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) in recent years ( 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 ). The increase in

Introduction Well-differentiated thyroid cancer is common, easily identified, and often curable. While the incidence of thyroid cancer has nearly tripled in the past three decades, mortality rates have remained stable (1, 2, 3) . This underscores
