Thyroid follicular cell neoplasia is biologically heterogeneous, ranging from benign to indolent malignancy to high-grade cancer. Mutation genotyping is effective at predicting tumor aggressiveness. Aggressive disease can be seen in a significant minority of cases where common driver mutations are undetected. We performed a correlative analysis of microRNA profiling with specific patterns of thyroid follicular cell nodules using a large clinical case database (n=5210) seeking discriminating information.
