Could you answer from my pathology report whether the tumor encapsulated or nonencapsulated? Does it show positive margin or free margin? Could you explain me the findings in detail? Thanks in advance.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Hope this report finds you in good health. Based on your query, my opinion is as follows:
In the report (attachment removed to protect patient identity), there is no mention of an encapsulation. Usually in classical papillary carcinoma as you had, there is no capsule often seen. Only in follicular variant of papillary carcinoma, capsule is commonly described.
At present, there is no need to worry about capsule. Only in follicular carcinoma, we are worried about capsular breach or invasion. In classical papillary carcinoma, we do not bother about capsule.

Thank you very much for your reply. Could you explain to me what cauterized tumor is? It was written in the report. The radiation doctor told me that she is worried about that, but she did not explain.

Thanks for asking again. Based on your query, my opinion is as follows:
Parathyroid glands are present just beyond the thyroid gland. Any major surgery was done, parathyroid glands can be damaged. If any surgery is being done and the tumor tissue is close, doctors perform cauterization to burn maximum tissue to avoid recurrence and also to prevent removal of the parathyroid.
