What Is The Percentage Of A Person Under 21 Having Cancer In Their Thyroid?

Postby Sayre » Fri Oct 06, 2017 4:18 pm

I am curious as to the chances of someone under the age of 21 found with thyroid Nodules having cancer.
I was told that there is I higher risk for those in their teens to have thyroid cancer found with nodules than those over 21 found with thyroid nodules.
I was wondering if that is true and just how much of a greater risk the teens are at.
