Skip to content Analysis of Race and Gender Disparities in Incidence-Based Mortality in Patients Diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer from 2000 to 2016

Read Full Article Here:

ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Well-differentiated thyroid cancer has better outcomes compared to undifferentiated/anaplastic thyroid cancer.

The incidence of well-differentiated thyroid cancer is known to be more in women whereas it is approximately the same in both genders for anaplastic thyroid cancer.

The variability of incidence-based mortality across gender in the context of race has not been studied.

As expected, the mortality rates of anaplastic thyroid cancer were significantly higher compared to well-differentiated cancer across all races and genders.

CONCLUSION: Incidence-based mortality for anaplastic thyroid cancer is higher in women in all races whereas there is no difference in mortality between men and women for well-differentiated thyroid cancer.
