     Pre- and Post-Congress Workshops











I think the Congress is very important for both clinicians and people who are interested in research and improvement. The topics are really very relevant and it brings academia together with the clinicians so that we can listen to each other and look at what are the areas we can collaborate and improve on.

Head and Neck Symposium
Tsunami or Pseunami? – Dealing with the Increasing Incidence
of Thyroid Cancer

Date: 22 Sep 2018


 Time: 1125 - 1300

Location: Academia, Level 2, L2-S3 & L2-S4

The incidence of thyroid cancer has increased faster than any other malignancy. Although over-diagnosis due to the increased use of imaging studies accounts to a large degree for this. There has also been an increase in the incidence of more advanced-stage thyroid cancer, coupled with the increase in death due to thyroid cancer. We discuss the challenges faced in dealing with this.
