ATA releases first guidelines for pediatric thyroid nodules, cancer

ATA releases first guidelines for pediatric thyroid nodules, cancer
May 27, 2015

An American Thyroid Association task force recently released guidelines for treating children with thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer that were published in Thyroid.

“These guidelines are important because the previous adult guidelines sort of suggested that the care of pediatric patients should be similar to adults,” Andrew J. Bauer, MD, of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, told Endocrine Today. “The problem is that even though the disease has the same name, the molecular biology and the clinical behavior of the disease are different. The goal of the guidelines is to try to maintain that excellent outcome but to also raise awareness about these differences and to create recommendations that help people make the right decisions to reduce short- and long-term complications.”
