Abstract

We reevaluate current treatment recommendations of papillary thyroid microcarcinomas taking into account the indolent behavior of these tumors, and the potential morbidity that may result from an unnecessary surgery. The goals of this communication are to: 1) provide surgeons and endocrinologists with the most up-to-date evidence on management of microcarcinomas, 2) outline appropriate instances for active surveillance, and 3) describe the role of surgical interventions for microcarcinomas including lobectomy, total thyroidectomy, and central neck dissection.
