    Abstract : Thyroid cancer is the most frequently observed malignancy involving endocrine tissues. This group of diseases is also the major cause of death related to neoplasia of the endocrine system. Tumors in the thyroid gland are common in the general population and the majority represents benign follicular adenoma (FTA). READ MORE
