Re: Is there a link between breast cancer and thyroid cancer?

I was also wondering if you had breast cancer and took radiation could that cause thyroid cancer OR if you take the radioactive iodine treatment for graves could that contribute to breast cancer?

I had estrogen and progesterone induced breast cancer in '98, but since it was not in my lymph nodes I just had to take radiation treatment and then took tamoxifen for 5 yrs and am on my 3rd yr. of femera.

I have been hypo for 35 yrs. I have 2 benign nodules. and was just diagnosed with hashi's 2 yrs. ago.
