Re: possible thyroid cancer

Maybe this will help make you feel less anxious. I had nodules and went through with the ultrasound, needle biopsy and then surgery to remove the entire thyroid because all the test didn't identify cancer. The thyroid had a very small amount of papillary cancer that was self-contained to the thyroid and had not effected the lymph nodes -- thank God the big "C" was out of me. The surgery was easy and I was up and out grocery shopping the next day. I was told by my surgeon and Endo that the cancer was treatable and curable. So be calm and what ever it may be it can be treated possibly with RAI. Good luck and God Bless.
