Abstract

Although several guidelines have been published for the management of differentiated thyroid cancers, there are still some controversies. Besides an effective initial therapy, long term follow-up of the patients with differentiated thyroid cancers is important for the optimum management and this can be best done by interdisciplinary approach. In this review, treatment strategies and the long term follow-up are summarized.
