While thyroid tumours, for example, PTC, have been reported in CNC, it is currently unclear if PTC are true component cancers of CNC. 1. 1. 1) FNMTC NMTC1, 2q21 Follicular variant of PTC RET/PTCn. The precise frequency is unknown but could range from 10–60 per cent. , 1993; 1994). , 2003). As somatic BRAF mutations and the presence of the RET/PTC translocation or RAS mutations are mutually exclusive, it is suggested that activation of the RAS-RAF-MAP kinase pathway is important in PTC development but that two insults to this pathway are not necessary.

2002). Although significant associations have been reported, these have not always replicated (see Hirvonen, 1995). These inconsistencies may reflect differences in study design and interethnic differences in polymorphism frequencies. Further molecular investigations should facilitate the identification of genetic susceptibility factors and may lead to methods to identify individuals most at risk from exposure to environmental carcinogens. While this might be advantageous in modifying occupational exposure, screening smokers to identify the minority at highest risk of developing lung cancer is likely to be impractical because it would have no effect on other smoking-related disorders such as coronary atherosclerosis.

The great majority of somatic RET mutations are M918T. , 1996b; 1998). , 1996a). It remains controversial whether somatic M918T in the primary tumour portends a poor prognosis. g. , 2001), and because of the presence of subpopulations and the varied mutation detection technologies employed, whether M918T status is associated with prognosis remains unknown. , 1996b). , 1995b). , 1996a). , 2001). 36 Genetics of human cancers by site of origin Benign neoplasias of the thyroid Benign thyroid neoplasias such as follicular adenomas, multinodular goitres and hamartomas are components of CS (see below).
