Özet

Papillary thyroid carcinoma presenting as a giant cervical mass; a case report. Papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) is a relatively uncommon malignancy. The prognosis is generally good and the mortality rate is low. PTC is more common in younger patients; incidence is two to three times higher in women and in individuals with radiation exposure to the neck.
