Patients with thyroid cancer can be safely treated by an experienced endocrine surgeon. More extensive initial surgery such as total or near-total thyroidectomy seems to decrease tumor recurrence and prolong life. When such operations can be done with minimal complications, we believe it is the treatment of choice because even low-risk patients have a 4% or 5% risk of eventually dying of thyroid cancer. If this risk of death from thyroid cancer can be decreased to 1% or 2% and the rate of serious complications is 1% or 2%, the authors believe total thyroidectomy is indicated. Most patients can be discharged within 1 day of total thyroidectomy.
