Abstract

Objective: Papillary microcarcinomas constitute more than half of thyroid cancers and incidentally detected between 2.7% and 36% ratios in all age groups in autopsy studies. Our aim in this study was to evaluate the incidental papillary thyroid carcinoma in surgical materials sent to the pathology department of 60 years and older patients.
