'Fwn Tlu-nrii-s Advatire<l .Such a phenomenon has occurred in some rases following'complete removal of the original gland by snrgm- or by massive does of radioactive iodine. In a significant number of cases the cancerous thyroid tissue that had spread to other parls of the body began to collect iodine. There have b<fm two theories ;... vnnceri on what makes the- spreading tumors show an increased cap- acily to collect radioactive iodine The first theory is Hint Ihe normal thyroid in the neck was ".stcalh. all the iodine ihat was licinp laken hv ihe patient, leavine little or none lor ilie ilistrnt. tumors.
