I'm not sure what this article is in reference to. 

MSK has been doing Active Surveillance for qualified tumors for some time now.

The link in your reply seems to be corrupted. It was fine in my post and included info on Papillary Cancer and Hashi's.

I am aware of the MSK study as the same link you provided was in my first comment.

I don't usually click on links, so didn't know you already included the MSK link.  I like the info they supply.  They are leading the way in limiting over-treatment, both in I-131 and thyroidectomy.

I did, however, read the thyroid cancer and thyroiditis journal from the ATA.  I'm not sure what it was referencing in this thread.

The quote/reply on this website does a lot of funky things to the quotes.  No idea why, but it's always been that way.

In WTC 2019, while the overall theme will be present in most parts of the program regarding management, there will be one specifically about active surveillance, from the authors of this paper:
