Thyroid tumor is one of the common and frequent tumors in the endocrine system, and its incidence is becoming more and more serious in recent years. Surgery is the best treatment method at this stage, but the difference of benign and malignant is directly related to the extent of resection and prognosis of the tumor, which may lead to a series of complications. Nowadays, interventional therapy is also used in the treatment of thyroid malignancies, so understanding the intratumoral and thyroid blood supply arteries has become a new research hotspot. This paper focuses on the analysis and investigation of the value of combined serum CEA and Tg tests in benign and malignant thyroid tumors to provide reliable reference data for clinical treatment.
