Özet

Background: The suppressive effect of the increase in thyroid hormone in patients with toxic nodular goiter is thought to protect the extranodular thyroid tissue from thyroid malignancy. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the prevalence and features of thyroid cancer in patients with toxic nodular goiter who underwent thyroidectomy.
