The article presents a study on the condition of cranial thyroid cancer metastasis. It cites the case of a 69-year-old woman, who was operated in 2005 due to a vascularized cranial metastasis of a papillary thyroid carcinoma, and has undergone a radiotherapy as a desperate solution to her condition. It notes the significance of radiotherapy since it helped in reducing pain and the size of huge bone thyroid metastases.
