Abstract

The risk of developing thyroid cancer after radiation exposure is well known, but specific modifiers of the dose-response relationship are not. Because Hodgkin's lymphoma affects younger patients with the potential for long-term survival, the subsequent development of thyroid neoplasia is a significant consideration. We experienced two cases of thyroid cancer following radiation exposure for Hodgkin's lymphoma, and we report our experience and present a review of the literature.
