Introduction: The most established endocrine problems are thyroid cancer. Differentiated thyroid cancers (DTCs) usually come in papillary and follicular forms [1]. Thyroid cancers are now more time-honored than ever, accounting for 1% of all cancer instances recognized yearly [2]. Follicular kinds have a better impact than aggressive anaplastic types, while follicular types have a higher outlook than papillary types.

Objective: How long-term survival for patients with unique thyroid carcinomas is predicted to be? Age, sex, bulk size, participation of lymph nodes, far away organ metastasis, surgical intervention, and differentiation

Methods: At the medical institution of Zagazig University, the surgical department, 123 patients obtained thyroid surgical process for differentiated carcinoma between 2018 and 2022. (96 for papillary sort most cancers and 27 for follicular kind cancer). Post-operative mortality, histopathology findings (multifocality and differentiation), local and distal lymphatic invasion, Results: Follow-up At the surgical branch of the Zagzig University, ninety-six sufferers with papillary cancer underwent surgery; the typical patient age was once 43.7/-16.0 years, and the male to girl ratio used to be 1:7. The 5-year mortality price after follow-up used to be 90.9% for papillary forms and 84.0% for follicular types, respectively. The average follow-up period was once 4.6/- 4.9 years. Twenty-seven instances (average age: 49.5/- 15.9 years, males: 7, females: 20, male to girl ratio: 0.35%) underwent follicular carcinoma surgery.

Conclusions: Age type of pathological character of thyroid tumor affecting the survival of patients.
