Thyroid cancer incidence is increasing in the United States, as well as other countries around the world. There is signficant controversy if this increased incidence represents an actual increase or is due to the changing approaches to diagnosis. A number of studies have suggested that obesity is associated with an increased risk of thyroid cancer and may be playing a role in the increased incidence of thyroid cancer.
