Thyroid Cancer

Hello i am a 20 year old male, when i was 18 i was diagnosed with papillary carcinoma thyroid cancer, ive had my thyroid removed and have been on medication to regulate everything since. Last week when visiting with my Endocrinologist I read in my file under diagnoses' that it says Cushings' Syndrome doing some research it seems possible that i may, im just wondering if anyone out there has had thyroid cancer that leads to this syndrome or the other way around. Thanks

Re: Thyroid Cancer

I personally don't know of any connection---but you have to be careful reading doctor's notes with no explanation---it can get confusing. Perhaps you can ask the doctor what cushings is, and how you got it?
