Abstract


By the end of the 1st decade after the Chernobyl accident, an increase in the incidence of thyroid cancer in the affected population of Russia was recorded [3], including in children [1]. The oncological alertness of doctors to any nodular formations of this organ has reasonably increased. Special observation is required by those who incorporated radioactive iodine in utero and in the first 3 years of life, when the radiosensitivity of thyroid tissue is maximum [2]. Nevertheless, voluminous thyroid formations after exposure to ionizing radiation, like non-irradiated ones, can be non-tumorous in nature, moreover, proceed not from thyroid tissue and simulate nodular goiter.
