We comment our attitude in dealing with lymph nodes and thyroid gland surgery for thyroid cancer. This was based on our 10 years experience with such surgery, in which we have performed 350 chirurgic interventions. Of them, in 55 cases a thyroid carcinoma was detected (36 papilar, 13 follicular, 4 medular, 1 anaplasic and 1 metastasic clear-cell carcinoma).
