Abstract

Purpose of review: Numerous staging and scoring systems exist for differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC), but all harbor limitations. This has prompted investigation for new factors with prognostic implications for DTC.

Recent findings: Several new factors that may be involved in DTC risk stratification have emerged, such as thyroid stimulating hormone and molecular markers. In addition, others are controversial and being challenged, such as age, sex and lymph node involvement.

Summary: The purpose of this review is to present recent updates in the literature on new potential risk stratification predictors for DTC.
