By Kim Kyung-hunKim Kyung – The Wall St. JournalLung disease is the most common cancer in South Korea, killing about 14 million people annually.
In the United States, it kills about one million people a year.
In South Korea a woman with a thyroid disorder is more likely to get ovarian cancer, and a person with diabetes is more than five times more likely.
The two diseases are more common in South Korean women than in American women, according to a recent study by the South Korean government.
But what makes this disparity particularly interesting is the fact that most patients with both thyroid disorders and diabetes have thyroid cancer.
Lung diseases affect about one in 10 South Koreans, but the risk is much higher among South Koreans who have both conditions, according a study published this week in the Journal of Korean Medical Association.
South Korea has some of the highest rates of the two cancers in the world, with more than a quarter of South Koreans diagnosed with thyroid cancer, the study said.
The findings come at a time when South Korea is under a public health emergency caused by the pandemic.
The country is working to slow the spread of the disease, but it is still difficult to diagnose and treat the conditions in a way that makes them more treatable, said Jung Min-hyun, a professor at Seoul National University who led the study.
It is a huge public health crisis.
The most common cancers of the thyroid are thyroid cancer and diabetes.
The cancers of both types are spread mainly by direct contact with the thyroid, which can be caused by contact with radioactive materials or contaminated food, or by living in a contaminated building, or living in an overcrowded housing project, according the Korea Institute of Hygiene and Environmental Science at the National University of Singapore.
The study found that people with both types of thyroid disease are more than twice as likely to have diabetes than people with only one type.
The incidence of both thyroid cancer is higher in South Koreans with diabetes, but that risk is not statistically significant.
The two cancers of diabetes are both linked to the metabolic syndrome, or high blood pressure and triglycerides, which is a combination of low blood sugar and high blood cholesterol.
South Korean people with diabetes have a 1 in 8 chance of developing both thyroid disease and diabetes, and the risk increases with age.
People with thyroid disease also have a greater risk of lung cancer, heart disease and other cancers, according Dr. Jung.
South Koreans with both conditions are at higher risk of having certain types of cancers, including breast cancer, lung cancer and prostate cancer.
South Korean people diagnosed with both diseases have a higher rate of cancers of prostate and lung tissue than those who have only one of the conditions, Dr. Min-Hyun said.
“The thyroid cancer has an extremely high risk of being misdiagnosed,” she said.
“There are some very rare cases where a person can develop thyroid cancer after a thyroidectomy, and if they get the wrong diagnosis it can lead to a death.”
The researchers used data from the South Korea National Health and Family Planning Survey, a national health survey that is administered by the Ministry of Health.
It has about 9 million questions on thyroid disease.
South and North Korean residents were also asked to complete questionnaires about the risks of each type of thyroid cancer they had.
The questionnaire was sent to about 12,000 people who had been screened in the past five years.
The researchers looked at a number of factors including age, gender, income and educational level.
They also looked at whether the person had had any previous thyroid surgery or had had a thyroid exam.
A thyroid screening test, known as a “thymoscopy,” is done to check for the presence of the tumor.
Thymoscopes are sometimes done without the patient having to see the thyroid.
Thymoscopies are only done if a patient’s thyroid is in the first stage of cancer, usually at the base of the neck or around the neck.
Thyroid cancers tend to be more aggressive than other cancers in people with thyroid disorders, which means that a person who has both types may have a much higher chance of having the disease than someone who has only one, Dr
