Thyroid cancer the most serious endocrine malignancy mostly diagnosed in young people and
more commonly in females. The managing of the pregnant female with thyroid cancer is
inescapably linked with substantial concern for both clinician and patient principally for any
recommended treatment. The aim of this study was to analyze unanimously diagnostic and
surgical outcomes in the patients with thyroid cancer treated with minimally invasive
techniques. 13 patients were suspected thyroid cancer were treated at the at the Department of
Surgery of Liaquat University of Medical & Health Sciences, Jamshoro, Sindh, Pakistan. The
average age of the pregnant females at the time of diagnostics was 35 years (ranges 31-39
years). In three patients, the thyroid cancer was recognized during first trimester, in six
patients during second trimester and in the four patients during third trimester of pregnancies.
The diagnostics of all tumors were made by expert pathologists by means of recognized
criteria. After surgical procedure, the treatment of thyroxine accomplished to the patients in
the sufficient doses for suppressing the level of thyrotrophin (TSH). Average follow-up was
6.5 years (4–9 years). In total, 12 of 13 patients are alive and completely cured with normal
level of serum thyroglobulin. Seven babies have been born then among eight of those
patients. The excellent outcomes expected for both follicular or papillary differentiated
thyroid cancer in young cases. Thyroid surgery during pregnancy is verified to be secure
though it is linked with enlarged fatal loss in more widely surgery such as neck dissection.
