Thyroid cancer and pregnancy – a short review

Siddhartha Atreya, Hem Kanta Sarma

ABSTRACT

Thyroid cancer in pregnancy has led to many debates regarding its proper management starting from investigations for early diagnosis, mode of management and follow up after pregnancy. Incidence of thyroid cancer has been increasing in recent years. Nodules detected during pregnancy require follow up with ultrasound and fine needle aspiration cytology. If malignancy is detected, surgery can be safely carried out in the second trimester of pregnancy. Thyroxine administration is recommended after surgery. Subsequent pregnancy should be delayed for atleast 12 months.
