Thyroid Carcinoma The thyroid is an important endocrine gland located in the lower neck below the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland (T3 and T4) mainly helps in regulating the metabolism of the body. Cancer in the thyroid gland is a malignant tumor originating from the tissue of this gland. Anaplastic carcinoma of the thyroid (ATC) generally occurs in people in iodine-deficient areas and in a setting of previous thyroid pathology (eg, preexisting goiter, follicular thyroid cancer, papillary thyroid cancer). Local invasion of adjacent structures (eg, trachea, esophagus) commonly occurs. ATC is believed to occur from a terminal. Thyroid cancer is the most common type of endocrine cancer. Diagnosis is on the rise in the United States. This may be because it has become easier to find the disease. The presence of an over- ing of the American Head and Neck Society, Boca Raton, all similar banding pattern, with discrete differences, when Fla, May , the papillary tumor was compared with the anaplastic Corresponding author: Daniel L. Stoler, PhD, Room , tumor (Figure 4), is consistent with anaplastic thyroid Cell and Virus.
Anaplastic carcinoma of the thyroid (ATC) is the most aggressive thyroid gland malignancy. Although ATC accounts for less than 2% of all thyroid cancers, it causes up to 40% of deaths from thyroid cancer.

Stage IVA (T4a, Any N, M0): The tumor is still within the thyroid (T4a). It might or might not have spread to nearby lymph nodes (any N), but it has not spread to distant sites (M0).

Fine-needle aspiration often yields enough cytologic information to allow diagnosis; however, if the fine-needle aspiration does not provide definitive results, the patient may require an open surgical biopsy.
