Re: thyroid cancer's spread to lung nd spine..plzz help
So sorry for your mom and what she's going thru. I had thyroid cancer, and I thought that pappillary mostly spreads in the neck, so that sounds terrible that she has it in her spine. My mom has breast that spread to the spine, and breast cancer is far more active than thyroid, and she's still here 5 years later, which is great, and should give you hope so much more for your mom with thyroid which is so slow growing.
There is somebody on the thyroid board who has had follicular thyroid cancer in his rib---that was 3-4 years ago, he's still around and healthy, and he has a spot in his lung, and he went to a good cancer hospital and they are putting him on a clinical trial.
Make sure your mom gets very professional care, with experienced doctors, and I hope she does well, and will be thinking of her.
