Encapsulated angioinvasive oncocytic carcinoma of the thyroid gland

Encapsulated angioinvasive oncocytic carcinoma is a type of thyroid cancer. The tumour is called “encapsulated” because it is separated from the normal thyroid gland by a thin band of tissue called a tumour capsule. “Angioinvasive” means cancer cells were found inside at least one blood vessel outside the tumour. Another name for this type of …

Widely invasive oncocytic carcinoma of the thyroid gland

Widely invasive oncocytic carcinoma is a type of thyroid cancer. It is called “widely invasive” because groups of cancer cells are found throughout the normal thyroid gland. This type of cancer is made up of large oncocytic cells, also known as Hurthle cells. How is this diagnosis made? The diagnosis of widely invasive oncocytic carcinoma …
