The researchers then set out to create a new set of laboratory ATC cells, derived from tumors donated by patients.
Radiation exposure may increase risk of thyroid disorders
One potential cause of thyroid disorders is exposure to radiation. People who have been exposed to production of nuclear weapons or above-ground detonation of an atomic bomb may have a higher risk for developing thyroid cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Moreover, children who have been exposed to nuclear substances may be more vulnerable to these conditions than adults.
