Genevieve Sassolas, Zakia Hafdi-Nejjari, Claire Berger and Francoise Borson-Chazot

Thyroid cancer is a relatively uncommon disease within the pediatric population. It represents less than 3% of the cancers in children. It is exceptional before the age of 10, and the incidence increases in adolescents, with a difference between boys and girls leading to the preponderance of females affected by the disease similar to that observed in adults. By comparison, incidence rates in adults 20-24 years are 2.30/100 000 in men and 6.54/100 000 in women.
