Thyroid diseases are the most common endocrine disorders, which range from non-neoplastic to neoplastic lesions. The incidence and pattern of thyroid lesions depend on various factors which include sex, age, and geographical patterns. Majority of thyroid lesions are non-neoplastic and only a small percentage are neoplastic. The aim of this study was to characterize a range of histopathological pattern in different thyroid lesions and to evaluate their frequency in terms of age and sex of the patients A total number of 157 patients who were underwent thyroidectomy specimens were retrospectively evaluated from January, 2016 to December, 2017. Detailed histopathological study correlated with age, and sex was done Non-neoplastic thyroid lesions were more common than neoplastic ones. Colloid goiter was the commonest non-neoplastic lesion. Follicular adenoma was the most common benign neoplasm while papillary carcinoma was the commonest malignant tumor of all thyroid cancer.
