Body size and thyroid cancer in two million Norwegian men and women.
Br J Cancer 2006; 95(3):366-70BJ

Abstract

We investigated relations between measured body mass index (BMI) and stature and thyroid cancer (3046 cases) in a large Norwegian cohort of more than two million individuals. The risk of thyroid cancer, especially of the papillary and follicular types, increased moderately with increasing BMI and height in both sexes.
