At over 400 pages long, and citing more than 1000 references, its a huge piece of work. Despite its size and weight, the guidelines have kept a strong common-sense feel, with many of the recommendations advocating a more conservative approach than in the past, reflecting that many thyroid cancers have a relatively favourable prognosis.
I particularly like the emphasis on re-staging people, based on how their disease does (or doesn't) progress with time. This allows the vast majority of patients (who are going to do very well) to have a more relaxed TSH target, and to hopefully help them to move through and beyond their thyroid cancer experience.
Well done the ATA!
