Thyroid cancer is the most common endocrine malignancy. This study surveys the pathologic characteristics of thyroid cancerin Mashhad and study of papillary carcinoma in more detail. In this retrospective study, 108 out of 197 cases of thyroid cancer were papillary in type (55%), with female to male ratio of 1.91 which is lower than current reports. The age at the time of diagnosis ranged from five to 78. Mean age for females was 36 and for males was 38.45 years. We hope that this study will stimulate physicians to reevaluate their thoughts about thyroid cancer and try to recognize such patients at an earlier stage in the course of their disease.
