A sample of 104 patients who suffered from cancer of the thyroid was selected - being this corroborated by means of paraffin wax biopsies. These biopsies were performed at the Department of Anatomy in the institution during 1999-2007. Qualitative and quantitative variables and the figures of cases per year were processed, histological variety and other items were represented in tables and charts. 15% of the total of patients suffered from cancer of thyroid, histologically the differentiated carcinoma prevailed (96%), and sometimes it was associated with other diseases, mainly Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. The values of the undifferentiated carcinoma were over the normal (3, 8%), referring to a follicular one, the rest was represented for the papillary variety.
