Table 3 Histology of follicular and Hürthle cell neoplasms and Tg concentration

From: Preoperative serum thyroglobulin concentration as a predictive factor of malignancy in small follicular and Hürthle cell neoplasms of the thyroid gland

Histology Number of patients Tg concentration ng/ml (range) Tg concentration ng/ml (median)
Carcinoma 62 1 to 3,424 86
 Follicular 10 2 to 3,424 72
 Hürthle cell 11 1 to 1,757 106
 Papillary, classic type 9 1 to 974 85
 Papillary, follicular type 31 1 to 540 90
 Papillary, Hürthle cell 1 4 4
Benign tumor 182 1 to 1,203 41
 Adenoma 115 1 to 1,026 32
 Benign goiter 67 1 to 839 54
