Two. The overall sex ratio of male and female in goiter is 1: 12.4. The ratio is 1: 15.0 in simple goiter, 1: 10.1 in toxic goiter, 1: 32 in benign tumor, and 1: 5.9 in malignant tumor. Three. The mean age of goiter patients is 33.2 years old of age. It is 34.7 in male and 33.0 in female. The mean age for simple goiter is 31.8, toxic goiter 32.6, benign tumor 39.0 and malignant tumor 41.9 years of age. Four.
