According to published research from Taiwan, "data on four male and four female patients with insular carcinoma of the thyroid were reviewed to elucidate the clinical characteristics of this malignancy. The median age of the patients was 62.5 years (range 29-78 years)."
"The size of the tumors ranged from 3.0 to 10.0 cm (median 4.7 cm). One patient with extensive neck disease and distant metastases underwent palliative debulking of the tumor mass and died of respiratory failure 10 days after surgery. Seven patients underwent total thyroidectomy."
