Risk of thyroid cancer after exposure to 131I in childhood

OBJECTIVE: evaluate the risk of thyroid cancer after exposure to radioiodine (especially 131-I) in childhood. Children exposed to 131-I after the Chernobyl accident in April 1986 were studied. METHODS: Retrospective review of 276 patients with thyroid cancer, matched with 1300 matched control subjects. RESULTS: Risk of thyroid cancer increased with increased exposure to 131-I during childhood. People living in iodine deficient areas had higher rates of thyroid cancer. Those geting routine potassium iodide supplementation had a lower risk of thyroid cancer. CONCLUSION: 131-I exposure in childhood increases the subsequent development of thyroid cancer. Dietary supplementation with potassium iodide decreases this risk. PMID: 15900042
