Lymphoma of the Thyroid Gland

ROJoson Medical Clinic

Lymphoma of the thyroid gland is not common, not common to the extent that it can be considered rare (at least based on my experience in the Philippines).

Non-Hodgkin’s Lyphoma (large cell type) is the most common type of lymphoma of the thyroid gland.

Below are pictures of the thyroid lymphoma that I removed from an 87-year-old female who presented with a rapidly enlarging thyroid gland / masses within a month-time.  She was initially being treated as Multiple Colloid Adenomatous Goiter with thyroid hormonal suppression therapy and needle aspiration.
