Abstract

Abstract Chemical carcinogens and promoters in thyroid carcinogenesis may be divided into two types, one having goitrogenic effects, the other not having these effects e.g. phenobarbital, 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane. The influence of sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone remains unclear, although some thyroid tumors have estrogen receptors. Further studies in this area are necessary.
