Because of the anatomical structure of the lymph drainage system, metastases from tumours with a primary site in the thyroid are often seen in the lymph node stations in the central zone (pre- and paratracheal stations) and from there further laterally to lateral lymph node stations or down in the mediastinum. For tumours located in the cranial part of the thyroid lobes, lymph drainage can, however, go primarily directly to the lateral lymph node stations.

Circulating TSH is heterogeneous. Different TSH methods can therefore determine various immunoreactive parts of the TSH populations in patient samples, which results in different reference ranges for healthy people, depending on the TSH method used. In addition, the immunological methods can be affected by interference. The most significant interference for TSH determination is caused by heterophilic antibodies. Animal antibodies, such as human antimouse antibodies (HAMA), in patient samples can create the bridge that is normally formed by the analyte (TSH) in the analytic reaction, thereby giving a false increase in the TSH value.
