Background: Regional lymph node (LN) metastasis at the time of presentation plays a significant role in predicting recurrence in patients with papillary thyroid cancer (PTC). Multiple studies in the adult population have demonstrated that the lymph node ratio (LNR) in both the central and lateral neck can improve the accuracy of recurrence prediction, but this ratio has not been studied in the. Thyroid cancer is the most common cancer of hormone glands (endocrine) in children. Still, thyroid cancer represents only 1% to % of all pediatric cancers. Of all cases of thyroid cancer, about 5% occur in children and teens. As in adults, a thyroid nodule (localized lump or mass) is a common symptom of thyroid cancer.

  Pediatric differentiated thyroid cancer makes up approximately 10% of all thyroid malignancies and is the second most common cancer in adolescents aged 15– There should be a high index of suspicion of any thyroid nodule that present in childhood as malignancy rates can be as high as 25–50%.   Although rare, differentiated thyroid cancer, which manifests almost exclusively as papillary thyroid cancer (PTC), represents between 1% and 2% of all pediatric .

The results suggest that while rates have increased because of enhanced diagnostic practices, the incidence of thyroid cancer may be increasing in the pediatric population.
