AMES classification system.

Low Risk
Young patients (men “41 years old, women” 51 years old)
without distant metastasis
Older patients (intrathyroidal papillary thyroid cancer,
minor capsular invasion for follicular lesion)
Primary cancers <5 cm in diameter
No distant metastasis
High Risk
All patients with distant metastasis
Extrathyroidal papillary
Major capsular invasion for follicular
All older patients with extrathyroidal spread
All older patients with primary cancer >5 cm in diameter
(men > 40, women > 50)
Survival by AMES score
Low risk = 99%
High risk = 61%
