Answer

Similarly, mortality has been reported to be increased in patients with Graves disease and differentiated thyroid carcinoma compared with euthyroid control patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma. [29] Graves disease patients had also higher mortality rates compared with general population, with a particular increase in mortality due to cardiovascular and lung disorders, while hyperthyroid patients had increased mortality secondary to toxic nodules had increased mortality associated with malignancies.
