Pitt, UPMC Explore Genetic Cancer Test to Offer Safe Thyroid-Preserving Surgery
When someone is diagnosed with thyroid cancer, they and their doctor have a tough decision to make. Current treatment guidelines allow for either complete thyroid removal or partial removal – and each has its risks and benefits. University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine scientists and doctors are embarking on the first-ever clinical trial to determine if the UPMC-developed molecular genetic test ThyroSeq could make that decision easier, while minimizing surgical complications and helping some patients avoid having to take medication every day to keep thyroid hormone levels in check.

Genetic Judgment: It's Not Cancer
http://www.dailyrx.com/benign-thyroid-nodules-may-be-identified-gene-signature http://www.dailyrx.com/conditions/thyroid-cancer Scientists have uncovered a potential new test which may eventually help identify which abnormal growths are not cancerous in order to avoid unnecessary tests and surgery. Doctors don't know why abnormal growths called nodules, commonly show up on the thyroid. Determining which nodules are cancerous tumors has been hard. A gene signature test in development may result in fewer people having unnecessary procedures to diagnose thyroid cancer. Learn about all tests used to help treat your cancer.

Nikiforova, Stephanie Mercurio, Abigail I. Wald, Michelle Barbi de Moura, Keith Callenberg, Lucas Santana-Santos, William E. Gooding, Linwah Yip, Robert L. Ferris, Yuri E. Nikiforov via Cancer BACKGROUND Molecular tests have clinical utility for thyroid nodules with indeterminate fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology, although their performance requires further improvement. This study evaluated the analytical performance of the newly created ThyroSeq v3 test. METHODS ThyroSeq v3 is a DNA- and RNA-based next-generation sequencing assay that analyzes 112 genes for a variety of genetic alterations, including point mutations, insertions/deletions, gene fusions, copy number alterations, and abnormal gene expression, and it uses a genomic classifier (GC) to separate malignant lesions from benign lesions. It was validated in 238 tissue samples and 175 FNA samples with known surgical follow-up. Analytical performance studies were conducted. RESULTS In the training tissue set of samples, ThyroSeq GC detected more than 100 genetic alterations, including BRAF, RAS, TERT, and DICER1 mutations, NTRK1/3, BRAF, and RET fusions, 22q loss, and gene expression alterations. GC cutoffs were established to distinguish cancer from benign nodules with 93.9% sensitivity, 89.4% specificity, and 92.1% accuracy. This correctly classified most papillary, follicular, and Hurthle cell lesions, medullary thyroid carcinomas, and parathyroid lesions. In the FNA validation set, the GC sensitivity was 98.0%, the specificity was 81.8%, and the accuracy was 90.9%. Analytical accuracy studies demonstrated a minimal required nucleic acid input of 2.5 ng, a 12% minimal acceptable tumor content, and reproducible test results under variable stress conditions. CONCLUSIONS The ThyroSeq v3 GC analyzes 5 different classes of molecular alterations and provides high accuracy for detecting all common types of thyroid cancer and parathyroid lesions. The analytical sensitivity, specificity, and robustness of the test have been successfully validated and indicate its suitability for clinical use.

Types Of Thyroid Cancer | Thyroid Cancer Treatments - Manipal Hospitals
This video is an informative animated presentation that explains in detail about Thyroid cancer and treatment . Thyroid cancer is a disease that begins in your thyroid gland. If you have thyroid cancer, it may be one of four types, depending on the type of thyroid cell in which the cancer started and the appearance of the cancer cells. Papillary carcinoma is the most common thyroid cancer and begins in follicular cells. Follicular carcinoma accounts for 1 in 10 cases and also begins in follicular cells. Medullary carcinoma is less common and starts para-follicular cells. Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma is a rare, more dangerous form of thyroid cancer. Thyroid cancer, like other cancers is an unrestrained growth of cells due to damaged genetic material in the cell’s nucleus. A tumour forms as the cells begin to accumulate. Overtime, a lump form in your thyroid as the tumour enlarges you may feel a lump in your neck over the thyroid gland. You may have neck or throat pain, coarseness and trouble swallowing as the tumour grows around the trachea. Watch the video to know more about types and treatment of thyroid cancer.

Targeted Next-Generation Sequencing in Thyroid Cancer
Traditionally, fine needle aspiration biopsy has been the accepted method for diagnosing thyroid cancer. However, in about 25 percent of patients this procedure cannot provide a definitive diagnosis. ThyroSeq® is a new test developed at UPMC using next-generation gene sequencing, examining biomarkers that may indicate cancer. Yuri Nikiforov, MD, PhD, director of Molecular and Anatomic Pathology at UPMC, led the team that developed this new test, and discusses how it can accurately diagnose potentially cancerous nodules, and may eliminate the need for suboptimal surgery.

This Is My_Thyroid Story
I was first diagnosed with an underactive thyroid when I was 10 years old. This diagnosis wasn't too much of a surprise because many people on my mom's side of the family have thyroid issues. This past year, we had genetic testing done to see if I have a rare medical condition known as Cowden syndrome. This condition involves the PTEN gene and many people with this medical condition have thyroid issues/thyroid cancer. I love sharing my story, educating others on rare and complicated medical condition and connecting with others through sharing my story.

James Study Aims to Identify Genetic Risk Factors in Hereditary Thyroid Cancer
Thyroid cancers are made up of many genes that make searching for hereditary risk factors difficult. But a new James study is looking at a specific kind of thyroid cancer, called papillary thyroid cancer, to identify not only genetic risks, but parts of patients’ DNA that can lead to the disease. By recruiting people with at least three cases of papillary thyroid cancer in the family, James experts can provide a variety of genetic testing methods to look for genetic markers and hone in what is causing certain families to be at risk.
Small Thyroid Cancers, Thyroid Hormones, and More.
In this 12-minute video interview, R. Michael Tuttle, M.D., Endocrinologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, New York, discusses several thyroid cancer topics. These include recent research on “watchful waiting” (also called active surveillance) rather than immediate surgery for small papillary or follicular thyroid cancers —under 1 centimeter in size. The interview also covers thyroid hormone replacement decision-making in thyroid cancer patients, as well as the issues of overdiagnosis and overtreatment. Dr. Tuttle is a thyroid cancer specialist, focusing on treatment of advanced thyroid cancer. He is a ThyCa Medical Advisor.

Thyroid cancer and Lynch syndrome - Video abstract ID 121812
Video abstract of case report paper “Thyroid cancer in a patient with Lynch syndrome – case report and literature review” published in the open access journal Therapeutics and Clinical Risk Management by authors Monika Fazekas-Lavu, Andrew Parker, Allan D Spigelman et al. Abstract: Lynch syndrome describes a familial cancer syndrome comprising germline mutations in one of four DNA mismatch repair genes, MLH1, MSH2, MSH6, and PMS2 and is characterized by colorectal, endometrial, and other epithelial malignancies. Thyroid cancer is not usually considered to be part of the constellation of Lynch syndrome cancers nor have Lynch syndrome tumor gene mutations been reported in thyroid malignancies. This study reports a woman with Lynch syndrome (colonic cancer and a DNA mismatch repair mutation in the MSH2 gene) with a synchronous papillary thyroid cancer. Six years later, she developed metachronous breast cancer. Metastatic bone disease developed after 3 years, and the disease burden was due to both breast and thyroid diseases. Despite multiple interventions for both metastatic breast and thyroid diseases, the patient’s metastatic burden progressed and she died of leptomeningeal metastatic disease. Two prior case reports suggested thyroid cancer may be an extraintestinal malignancy of the Lynch syndrome cancer group. Hence, this study examined the genetic relationship between the patient’s known Lynch syndrome and her thyroid cancer. The thyroid cancer tissue showed normal expression of MSH2, suggesting that the tumor was not due to the oncogenic mutation of Lynch syndrome, and molecular analysis confirmed BRAF V600E mutation. Although in this case the thyroid cancer was sporadic, it raises the importance of considering cancer genetics in familial cancer syndromes when other cancers do not fit the criteria of the syndrome. Careful documentation of other malignancies in patients with thyroid cancer and their families would assist in better understanding of any potential association. Appropriate genetic testing will clarify whether a common pathogenic mechanism links seemingly unrelated cancers.

Thyroid Cancer - How to remove thyroid cancer by Dr Majid Ahmed Talikoti
https://goo.gl/iIrBBH Thyroid Cancer Removal Surgery - Total Thyroidectomy by Dr Majid Ahmad Talikoti Thyroid cancer is a cancer originating from follicular or parafollicular thyroid cells. Most often the first symptom of thyroid cancer is a nodule in the thyroid region of the neck. The most effective management of aggressive thyroid cancers is surgical removal of thyroid gland. The most effective management of aggressive thyroid cancers is surgical removal of thyroid gland (thyroidectomy) followed by radioactive iodine ablation and TSH-suppression therapy. Chemotherapy or radiotherapy may also be used in cases of distant metastases or advanced cancer stage. Eight-year survival rates. Signs and symptoms Most often the first symptom of thyroid cancer is a nodule in the thyroid region of the neck. However, many adults have small nodules in their thyroids, but typically under 5% of these nodules are found to be cancerous. Causes Thyroid cancers are thought to be related to a number of environmental and genetic predisposing factors, but significant uncertainty remains regarding its causes. Environmental exposure to ionizing radiation from both natural background sources and artificial sources is suspected to play a significant role, and there are significant increased rates of thyroid cancer in those exposed to mantlefield radiation for lymphoma. Diagnosis After a thyroid nodule is found during a physical examination, a referral to an endocrinologist or a thyroidologist may occur. Most commonly an ultrasound is performed to confirm the presence of a nodule and assess the status of the whole gland. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thyroid_cancer Join the Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/medfreelancers/ Subscribe YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/medfreelancers Contact details Mobile & WhatsApp No:- +91 9910580561 E-mail :- medfreelancers@gmail.com Services available in Delhi and NCR Fluidscape by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100393 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ https://goo.gl/iIrBBH -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Endoscopic Septoplasty for Correction of Deformity of Septum | ENT Surgery " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hwi9LcD1HcY -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Causes of thyroid cancer that you don't know
Causes of thyroid cancer that you were not aware of The exact cause of thyroid cancer is not known. Similar to how other cancer forms develop, changes in the DNA of cells is responsible for the development of thyroid cancer. These alterations could either be genetically inherited or occur over a period of time. But, it is well established that cancer is not contagious. 1 Thyroid cancer risk factors Exposure to radiation increases one's chances of getting thyroid cancer. A mere dental X-ray, however, does not increase the chances of developing thyroid cancer, but a radiation therapy to the head, neck or chest surely does. There has been significant amount of research to understand DNA changes that become cancerous. Most cancers are not inherited, which means that DNA gets damaged by the exposure to something in the environment such as radiation or smoke during the course of one's life. The cancer may also occur when unexpected changes take place inside a cell without a specific external cause. The following are the prominent risk factors for thyroid cancer: 2 Benign thyroid disease Thyroid conditions i.e., either underactive or overactive thyroid are not related to the risk of thyroid cancer in any way, however, non-cancerous conditions such as nodules (adenomas), goitre (an enlarged thyroid) and thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid) increase thyroid cancer risk. 3 Radiation and low iodine levels Thyroid cancer is more likely to develop in individuals who have had radiotherapy treatments at a tender age, though the cancer usually develops years later. Survivors of atomic explosions or accidents are also at an increased risk of developing thyroid cancer. Individuals with low levels of iodine in their body are at more risk of thyroid cancer after any exposure to radiation. 4 Family history of thyroid cancer Individuals with a family history of thyroid cancer are at a higher risk of developing thyroid cancer. 5 Bowel condition FAP Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), a condition caused by an inherited gene, increases the chances of developing thyroid cancer. 6 Breast condition history Women with non-cancerous breast conditions are at increased risk of thyroid cancer. 7 Cancer history Individuals who have been treated for breast cancer, oesophageal cancer, testicular cancer or non Hodgkin's lymphoma have high risk of developing thyroid cancer. These are the possible risk factors for thyroid cancer suggested by research reports over the years. Although thyroid cancer is a rare form of cancer, it is favourable to be aware about its symptoms and treatment options for better prognosis. **************************** Top 7 Juices to Cure cancer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZirAeQIy98 Papaya Leaves A Powerful Cure for Cancer | Natural Health https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42iALmCnLOY Why Are Doctors Hiding This Simple Recipe - This Is How You Can Treat Bunions 100% Naturally https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aa81e5hMq3w Coconut Oil and Baking Soda Can Destroy Cancer!

Genetic test predicts aggressiveness of prostate cancer
A new gene test may help identify slow-growing prostate cancers that will require treatment, a new study suggests. The test revealed the levels of "expression" of three aging-related genes and could be used to predict whether seemingly slow-growing prostate cancer will remain slow-growing, according to Columbia University Medical Center researchers. Using the three-gene test along with existing cancer-staging tests could help doctors better determine which men with early prostate cancer can be safely monitored and spared the potential risks of prostate removal or other invasive treatments, the study authors suggested. The investigators assessed the test in 43 prostate cancer patients who had been monitored for at least 10 years. All of the men had initially been diagnosed with low-risk cancer, but 14 eventually developed advanced prostate cancer. All 14 of those patients were correctly identified by the three-gene test, according to the study, which was published online Sept. 11 in the journal Science Translational Medicine. The researchers plan to conduct a larger study to assess the test's accuracy. "Most of the 200,000 prostate cancers diagnosed each year in the U.S. are slow-growing and will remain so, but the three-gene biomarker could take much of the guesswork out of the diagnostic process and ensure that patients are neither overtreated nor undertreated," study leader Cory Abate-Shen, a professor of urological oncology at Columbia University Medical Center, said in a university news release. And, as study co-author Dr. Mitchell Benson, chairman and professor of urology at the medical center, explained in the news release: "The problem with existing tests is that we cannot identify the small percentage of slow-growing tumors that will eventually become aggressive and spread beyond the prostate." Currently, men diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer can choose either active surveillance, which includes regular testing and monitoring but risks missing the window when the disease is localized and potentially curable, or aggressive treatment, which can cause serious side effects such as urinary incontinence and impotence. Dr. Louis Kavoussi is chairman of urology at North Shore-LIJ's Arthur Smith Institute for Urology in New Hyde Park, N.Y. He said: "Men getting a diagnosis of prostate cancer are initially shocked and begin conjuring images of themselves as desperate, dying patients. In reality, the majority of patients with prostate cancer do not die of the disease, and a large portion can be managed with observation. This study looks at novel molecular tools to help define which patients can be managed conservatively, and avoid potential side effects and expensive treatments." Dr. Aaron Katz, chairman of urology at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y., said: "In the current era, it is clear that PSA screening has detected many men with prostate cancer. In the years past, we believed that all men needed to be treated. The good news is that many men who are found to have these abnormal cells in their prostate may not need any treatment. With advances in genomics and DNA testing, we are now able to stratify those men with indolent disease, and prevent unnecessary treatment."

Dr. Ruddy on the Importance of Genetic Testing in Breast Cancer
Kathryn Ruddy, MD, associate professor of Oncology, Mayo Clinic, discusses how genetic testing could impact treatment of patients with breast cancer. According to Ruddy, it’s important to perform genetic testing for genes like BRCA1 and BRCA2, which have already been determined to play a role in care of women with strong family history of breast cancer or younger patients. Because rates of these mutations are higher in younger women diagnosed with breast cancer, it is best to do genetic testing early as it can impact surgical treatment decisions. It can also be useful in metastatic disease where PARP inhibitors are more effective in patients with BRCA mutations. Ruddy says that even though a patient here may not undergo breast surgery, understanding the mutations can still play a role in selecting systemic therapies.
